Fredericton is well known for its tree canopy. Our urban forest consists of thousands of trees, with a great diversity of species, found along city streets, in parks and green spaces, and on private properties.

The City of Fredericton Parks & Trees division employs professional staff to manage the trees within its care. It is responsible for the management of all trees on its property, including our forests, parks, river banks, and trail system. There are approximately 21,000 street trees within City limits, all of various species, age, and size.

The City follows the principle of Integrated Pest Management, as well as the guidelines set out by the International Society of Arboriculture, ensuring that our urban forest is well cared for in an environmentally-responsible manner.
