Urban forests are the trees in the cities and neighborhoods where we live. The urban forest includes trees along streets, in parks and natural areas, and in your own backyard.
Urban forests provide many important environmental, social, and economic benefits and services too.
Urban forestry is the care and management of these trees in cities. Many cities, including Roseburg, have a tree care program that manages trees along city streets and in parks. In the City of Roseburg, the Tree Ordinance and Tree Program pertain to those trees located within the City's right-of-way and public-way areas and the trees in Roseburg city parks and beautification areas.
Below are links to the Roseburg Tree Ordinance, Tree Program, Tree Permit, and information on how to correctly prune and care for trees.
