Portland, OR Trees in the Curb Zone Pilot seeks environmental and traffic benefits from tree canopy

Portland, OR Trees in the Curb Zone Pilot Canopy Benefits


Local officials are seeking an innovative way to add trees in places with limited planting space. The Portland Bureau of Transportation plans tree plantings in parking lanes throughout the Brentwood-Darlington neighborhood starting in 2024. Increased tree canopy will not only improve air quality but decrease speeds through high-density areas. The Pedestrian Design Guide and an engagement process with community members will shape design standards as well as site selection.
