Heavy snow can weigh down trees and limbs during this significant winter weather. To report downed trees and large limbs across roads or other tree-related emergencies, please call 503-823-TREE. Another option is to email Trees@portlandoregon.gov.

Portland Parks & Recreation (PP&R) Urban Forestry crews will respond to the most impactful situations first, though they are impacted by heavy snow like everyone else - but they will address any and all hazards citywide.

Urban Forestry crews have readied their equipment and chained up their vehicles. A top priority for crews this morning is a tree reported down on a Portland Streetcar wire near NW 10th and Everett. Other notable situations include a tree leaning against a church at SW Park and Madison and a large tree that fell into a building on the Portland State University campus.

For more information on PP&R Urban Forestry, including permits, contact information, and resources, please visit https://www.portlandoregon.gov/parks/38294

Other PP&R impacts due to winter weather today: all Portland Parks & Recreation and other City of Portland buildings, offices and facilities are CLOSED on Wednesday, January 11.

For the latest on any Portland Parks & Recreation closures or weather-related impacts, please visit our website at at portlandoregon.gov/parks/weather.
