The Albany Heritage Tree Program was established in 1999 to help increase public awareness of the important contribution of trees to Albany’s history and heritage.
Heritage trees shall be within the City limits, unique in size, structure, or species and/or shall be significant on the basis of their importance in local, state, or national history.
To nominated a tree for heritage status, please submit the form below and it will be brought to the City Tree Commission for consideration.
Once a tree is designated as a heritage tree, it will remain so unless it becomes necessary to classify it as a dangerous tree and remove as such. Heritage trees may not be removed without the expressed consent of the City Tree commission. (AMC 7.98.120)
