The Bend City Council will begin to consider how to protect Bend’s urban tree canopy, which is a term that refers to the part of a city that is shaded by trees

Bend, OR – According to the city officials, councilors will learn about how existing tree preservation regulations are applied.

The Council then may provide direction on what changes should be explored.

The City does have tree-related rules already on the books. Some include: 

  • On all undeveloped properties or properties without land use approval, trees of a certain diameter must be kept.
  • Those trees that are kept must be protected from clearing and grading activity and incorporated into the site as it is developed.
