Halifax has planted over 1,600 trees in 2019 alone. The majority of these trees were planted as a part of our fall and spring planting programs.
In honor of CN's 100th anniversary, Halifax, CN and Tree Canada partnered to support green space initiatives in Halifax by planting over 50 additional trees.
Urban Street Tree Inventory
Urban Forestry is currently in the process of developing a street tree inventory. The data will include:
- Whether the spot is vacant
- Tree species
- Tree size
This information will allow Urban Forestry to make sound decisions relating to fiscal planning, species diversification, pest and invasive species management, planting and pruning plans, and much more.
Although only districts 7 and 8 will be completed this year, the goal is to have all urban street trees within Halifax on this inventory.
