Every tree is an important part of Vancouver’s urban forest.
Vancouver’s urban forest includes every tree in the city – on streets, in parks and public spaces, and in back yards.
The urban forest is an important contributor to environmental and social health. Trees clean the air, absorb rainwater, provide wildlife habitat, and improve physical and mental health and well-being.
We care for the urban forest in many ways, including maintenance and watering, planting, education, and supporting community stewardship opportunities for you to help care for the city's trees.
Vancouver's Urban Forest Strategy provides tools for growing and maintaining a healthy, resilient urban forest for future generations.
