Heritage Trees

Trees play an important role in the history, culture and livability of Clackamas County.

They provide shade, wildlife habitat, scenic beauty, erosion control and pollution mitigation.  There are also individual trees and groups of trees that are significant to a community because of their size and/or beauty, rarity or association with an historic person or event such as trees designated as Clackamas County Heritage Trees.

Clackamas County established the Heritage Tree Program in 2007 to encourage residents and property owners to identify and protect individual trees or groups of trees that meet one or more of the following qualifications.
