Tree City began in 2005 as an urban greening group helping Vancouver residents improve their own neighbourhoods through trees.
- To engage citizens in the creation of a healthy environment through the planting and care of trees.
- Provide leadership and expertise to community groups, businesses and individuals to improve the environment with trees.
- Enhance urban food security and agricultural engagement with fruit trees and edible landscaping.
- Help make Vancouver a world-class model for citizen stewardship of the environment by connecting people and trees.
We are currently concentrating our efforts on a campaign to help Vancouver reach one of its key Greenest City 2020 goals – growing the urban forest. We’ve been asked to help support residents and businesses in six target neighbourhoods to plant more trees on their own properties. Check out our program website at TreeKeepers.ca for details, updates and how you might be able to join in.
