Trees in Abbotsford - Urban Forestry Strategy

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The City's growing population and increasing development activities are creating a number of challenges for our trees. Development, installing water and sewer utilities, invasive species, tree diseases, aging and climate change are all creating a challenging environment to grow healthy trees.

We are currently working on an Urban Forestry Strategy and we want your input! When the Strategy is complete, it will provide a clear direction and long-term vision for managing the City's urban trees for the next 15 years and beyond.

Thank you to all who took the survey. Results and draft reports will be published here when available.
