Maintained boulevard trees

To help maintain the size of Edmonton’s urban forest, the City replants boulevard and open space trees through the Tree Replacement Program.

For the past several years, the City has lost roughly 3,000 Boulevard and Open Space Trees annually. Trees succumb to pests and disease, construction damage, drought, vehicle collisions, storm damage, age and other external circumstances. Furthermore, in the late 1990s and early 2000s, a drought contributed to a significant loss of total canopy. Roughly 20,000 trees were lost and that loss has yet to be completely replaced.
