Citizens interested in planting trees on public property are required to submit a proposal. Each proposal must include:
- A written plan indicating the proposed tree species and distances from surrounding infrastructure. This plan will be reviewed by an Urban Forester and circulated to stakeholders to ensure there are no future plans for developments at the proposed site. This process could take up to six weeks.
- A planting map/drawing.
- Signed letters of consent from adjacent property owners. Following your initial application, an Urban Forester will assist with the levels of consent and documentation required.
- A utility locate request from Alberta One-Call and Shaw. The locate should be valid at the time of the planting. Trees shall not be planted within one metre of any underground utility.
