Tree Ordinance

The Tree Ordinance’s purpose is to ensure that the City and areas that may become part of the City of West Linn will continue to realize the benefits provided by its urban forest, and to establish a process and standards which will minimize uncontrolled cutting or destruction of trees or wooded areas in West Linn. It is the intent of the tree ordinance to establish, maintain, and increase the quality of the tree cover on public and private lands within the City; maintain City trees in a healthy and non-hazardous condition through good arboricultural practices, and to provide a stable and sustainable urban forest.
