Concrete Removal for One Tree Well and PBOT ROW permit


If you have concrete in your planting strip, Friends of Trees will obtain all required permits and have a contractor remove the concrete to create a tree well. 

Please note:

  • The tree well is 6 feet long along the curb/sidewalk. The width is determined by the city in white paint marks.
  • This fee is the subsidized price for cutting one tree well for one street tree.
  • The rest of the cost is subsidized by the City of Portland.
  • This fee is non-refundable.

Concrete Cutting Timeline:

  • The process for getting your concrete cut will begin immediately, and the cut will be done in advance of your planting date.
  • Fill will be added to bring the soil level up to grade at the time of the cut for pedestrian safety.
  • Your tree will be planted on planting day.


If you have questions about this process please call Gustavo, our customer service specialist at 503-467-2529 or email
