From Portland Parks and Recreation:
Street trees are trees planted in parking strips, the area between sidewalk and street.
Choosing the right one is a big decision and the City of Portland offers lists of suggested trees to help you narrow the possibilities.
Street tree lists are set based on the width of the parking strip and whether or not power-lines are present.
Portland Nursery carries most trees on the lists but caliper is usually 1 inch to
1 ½ inches instead of the 2" that is preferred by the city.
Tree availability is seasonal with early spring offering the largest selection.
