Trees located in a Natural Stand are typically surrounded by native vegetation growing in a more natural state. This includes Natural Areas which are relatively undisturbed by human activity and Naturalized Sites which are undergoing transformation from a highly-maintained to a more natural state.
Natural stands within the City can be looked up on the Natural and Naturalized Vegetation Map by filtering the ‘Type’ to Natural.
As Naturalized Sites are in the process of being transformed from a highly-maintained to a more natural state, they can be a bit more difficult to identify. Some visual indications that a site might be undergoing naturalization are long grass, unpruned shrubs, or groups of native trees and shrubs that have been planted. All CoE Naturalized Sites can be looked up on the Naturalization Map.
Boulevard and Open Space Trees
Are all trees on City-owned land that are not located in a Natural Stand. These trees are typically located in sites that are more highly-maintained such as hardscape, such as pavement, mown grass or shrub beds.
Boulevard and Open Space Trees can be looked up on the City of Edmonton Trees Map.
Please note that it is strongly recommended to measure the distance between your work activity and City trees while in the field. Online maps often do not have the degree of accuracy necessary for these measurements.
