Oregon City revising city's code for trees

Oregon City is working to protect more trees, revising the municipal code to expand the number of "heritage trees" as well as strengthening protection for trees on private property.
"We are working on developing a fully fledged tree preservation program," said Pete Walker, an associate city planner who has been spearheading the efforts.
