Edmonton's river valley

The City is committed to growing, sustaining, maintaining, preserving and protecting our urban forest.

Edmonton’s Urban Forest

As Edmontonians, we value and understand the importance of the city’s urban forest. Edmonton’s trees provide many environmental, ecological, economic, and social benefits. These include sequestering greenhouse gases, reducing damage from stormwater, providing wildlife habitat, reducing costs for winter heating and summer cooling, and promoting a self of well-being and positive mental health! With careful stewardship, these benefits can continue for generations, appreciating over time.
