Take Our Urban Trees Survey

Survey runs from October 22 to November 7

Urban trees are an increasingly important City asset. They provide environmental, ecological, economic, and social benefits to Edmontonians by purifying the air we breathe, contributing to urban biodiversity, providing wildlife habitat, beautifying our community, absorbing greenhouse gas emissions and providing a sense of well-being. 

We want to hear from you! Tell us your views on how we should manage and protect public trees in parks, boulevards, the river valley, ravines, roadways and more. We are gathering feedback on the following:

Corporate Tree Management Policy

This policy ensures that the urban forest is sustainable, maintained, protected and preserved. It also ensures there are means of acquiring trees and growing the urban forest.

Tree Protection Bylaw

The City is proposing the development of a Tree Protection Bylaw for tree protection enforcement. The objective of this project is to increase Urban Forestry awareness, preservation and protection planning. Ultimately, the aim is to prevent tree damage or loss.

Urban Forest Asset Management Plan

The City recognizes the need for a longer-term asset management plan to ensure a sustainable, resilient urban forest. This plan will include detailed financial information, staffing requirements, monitoring schedule and measurement techniques that meet the principles, objectives and strategies identified in the Urban Forest Management Plan
