As Edmontonians, we value and understand the importance of the city’s urban forest. The City understands the importance of these assets and works to maintain and grow the urban forest. With careful stewardship, these benefits can continue for generations, appreciating over time. Proper management is crucial for continuous growth and improvement of the urban forest.

Edmonton’s trees provide many environmental, ecological, economic, and social benefits. These include sequestering greenhouse gases, reducing damage from stormwater, providing wildlife habitat, reducing costs for winter heating and summer cooling, and promoting a sense of well-being and positive mental health!

Are you planning any construction or demolition work? Does this work require laydown sites or site access within 5 meters of any City-owned trees or 10 metres within a natural area? If you are coordinating any activities on or off City property that may have an impact on City trees, visit Public Tree Permit to take the steps required to preserve and protect City trees.
