Fredericton regards the importance of its urban forest as second to none and an extremely valuable resource. The many trees and green spaces contribute to the health and the wellbeing for all who live, work and play in the Capital City.
By embracing the principals of IPM (Integrated Pest Management) and adhering to the guidelines of the ISA (International Society of Arboriculture), the parks and trees division ensure that the urban forest is cared for and maintained in an environmentally responsible manner.
Ranging in age, size and species, there are 30,000 street right-of-way and ornamental park trees within City Limits. Our urban forest provides: wildlife habitats, soil stabilization, shelter from the elements, clean air, aesthetic and social value. Trees are a large part of history, enjoyed daily and celebrated annually on Arbor Day, the third Thursday of May.
