Trees bring many benefits to Edmonton’s neighbourhoods and ecosystems. Construction and excavation work can put nearby trees at risk, along with the benefits those trees provide. Impacts that seem small like bark damage and root compaction can cause irreparable damage to a tree, and the benefits provided by mature trees are not replaced by planting a new tree for many years, if ever. The Public Tree Permit process helps people working near City-owned trees work with the City’s Urban Forestry team to preserve trees near their worksites.
