Tree Removal Process
To help maintain the size of Edmonton’s urban forest, the City replants boulevard and open space trees through the Tree Replacement program. Every year, the Inventory and Assessment team assesses these trees located on one half of the city. If a tree has been marked for removal, it will be a candidate for the Tree Replacement program.
Every fall the percentage of sites requiring replacement in each neighbourhood of the quadrant’s scheduled for planting in the following year are evaluated and neighbourhoods with a higher proportion of sites that require replacement are prioritized.
