Dear Neighbor,
Tagged street trees at this address are schedule to be pruned for sidewalk clearance and branch structure.  Specific pruning will depend on age, size, location, health and species of the tree.  Pruning will be done by trained volunteers to City of Portland street tree pruning standards.
Please join the Arbor Lodge Tree Team and Portland Parks & Recreation to care for your urban forest. Pruning will start at Gammans Park on July 12 at 9 a.m. and July 15 & July 22 at 7 p.m. For questions or to join a pruning event, call or text Urban Forestry Outreach at 503-823-8779. 
Street tree pruning permits have been issued for this event, if additional pruning is needed please visit www.portlandoregon.gov/parks/trees to apply for a pruning permit or schedule an arborist consultation.
Please have your green yard debris bin accessible for branch disposal.  If your green yard debris bin is not accessible, branches will be bundled and left at the base of the tree.
If you do NOT want the adjoining street
tree(s) pruned, please remove the tag from the tree(s). 
The following tree characteristics may be addressed during the street tree pruning:
A. Branches that are rubbing, growing into the tree or broken.
B. Branches with close spacing.
C. Branches with narrow angles and double leaders.
D. Vertical branches from the base of the tree or other locations.
                                             
Tree(s) may also be pruned for sidewalk and road clearance removing branches less than 7 feet above the sidewalk and 11 feet over the road. All pruning will be done to City Code and tree industry pruning standards.
