HELPING HRM STAFF HELP OUR TREES

The municipality’s annual tree planting program is officially underway. This year, staff will be planting 3,100 trees in various locations throughout the region.

The municipality’s urban forest consists of all trees within the urban core, including street trees, park trees, and trees on private and public lands. The goal of the plan is to ensure a sustainable future for our urban forest and to create awareness about the many benefits that are gained from the trees in our neighbourhoods.

Monitoring crews will continue to visit neighbourhoods to evaluate the condition of the new street trees, noting any diseased or dead trees that require attention under the replacement warranty provided by our tree planting contractors.

In the meantime, residents can report street tree damage by calling 311.
