Plan, Policy and Procedure
The Urban Forest Management Plan outlines key principles, objectives and strategies.
Corporate Tree Management Policy and Tree Reserve Procedure outline roles and responsibilities in managing the City of Edmonton Urban Forest and outline mechanisms to ensure preservation and protection.
The policy also refers to three supporting guidelines that are used by the City including:
- In most cases, the trees that line the streets and that grow in our parks and River Valley are owned by the City
- Call 311 to confirm if a tree adjacent to or on your construction site is a City-owned tree
- City trees exist in parks, along boulevards, natural areas - including our River Valley and ravines and tableland native tree stands and naturalized sites - all require our stewardship
