Edmonton's tree planting initiative! Learn more about planting trees in the city.

The 2020 Root for Trees volunteer season has been suspended. We would like to thank the volunteers who were interested in planting with us and we hope to plant with you next season!

Root for Trees intends to increase tree planting within the city through continued partnerships with businesses, individual residents, and community groups. The annual target of this initiative is to plant an additional 45,000 trees. Celebrate trees at our special events and participate in our tree planting initiatives.

Add the trees in your yard and neighbourhood to the yegTreeMap and help us create a more complete inventory of trees in Edmonton.

Your safety is our top priority! As a result of recent changes to the Alberta OH&S Act, this program is temporarily on hold as we work to bring the self-guided option into compliance.
