Tree work is planned in many Calgary neighbourhoods including pruning of public trees, the annual NeighbourWoods community partnerships, tree planting, and the life cycling of poplar trees.

The unseasonal snowstorm last September caused significant damage to our urban forest. Estimates indicate 50 per cent of the 500,000 public trees and 1.5 million private trees sustained damage from the storm. With three times as many damaged trees on private property as on City land, recovering from the storm will require us to look after our trees together.
