A healthy tree serves several important functions on your property. It shades your home reducing the amount of energy needed to cool it. It also soaks up water in the soil reducing the chance of flooding.
Calgary's tree canopy was devastated by the snow storm last September. More than a million trees were killed or damaged. Efforts to recover from the storm will continue for a long time. Below is some helpful information on recovery work in your community.
Tree work is planned in many Calgary neighbourhoods including the pruning of public trees, NeighbourWoods community partnerships, tree planting, and the life cycling of poplar trees. You can use an easy interactive map to see how The City is helping public trees recover in your community.
The Tree Recovery Map will keep you updated on what is scheduled for your community. Learn when trees near your home are being pruned or replanted, and find out if you live in a NeighbourWoods community. To access the map and check on the tree work happening in your community, visit calgary.ca/trees.
