Contribute to Winnipeg’s urban canopy!

Contribute to Winnipeg’s urban canopy!

The City of Winnipeg is in the processing of creating the Winnipeg Urban Forest Strategy. This policy will provide long-term vision and direction for management of the city’s tree canopy and plan strategic actions to help protect, preserve, and grow the canopy well into the future.

The urban forest is boulevard trees, our parks and greenspaces, and in our own backyards. Winnipeggers are being asked to participate in this visioning and planning through a variety of opportunities:

Online survey:

Provide your input on where the Winnipeg Urban Forest Strategy should focus its resources.

Self-guided forest tour:

Take one of four tours of the forest canopy across the city.

Use the mapping tool:

View the current forest inventory, and add locations you feel need attention or consideration.

Comment on a discussion forum:

Share your thoughts with the project team and other Winnipeggers.
