In 2006, an ordinance established the Tree Commission.

Become a member of a board or committee! File an application and resume with the town clerk and indicate the board or committee in which you are interested. The Town Council appoints members of most town-related boards.

Arbor Day Foundation

Portsmouth is a Tree City, USA thanks to the efforts of the Tree Commission! Visit the Arbor Day Foundation to see Rhode Island Communities involved in the program.

Commemorative Tree Donation Program

The Portsmouth Tree Commission has initiated a Commemorative Tree Donation Program to help increase our town's tree population. With your support we can improve the health and beauty of Portsmouth's community forest!
