What if I think my tree needs to be pruned or removed?

You may request an inspection by calling 207-808-5400, emailing trees@portlandmaine.gov or by creating a request online here. We will add a service request to our work order system, but please understand we have a backlog of hundreds of work orders (including high priority tree removals) and a very small crew to complete the work. Emailing trees@portlandmaine.gov is the best way to check in on the status of your request.
