Tree donation on city land

If you are interested in donating or transplanting a tree onto City land, there are a few steps to help make your donation go smoothly. 

The tree donation on public land application must be submitted prior to starting the project. No planting or excavation can occur before the City arborist or a member of our Parks Department has contacted you. Your application will include a diagram that outlines all details of planting intentions.

As the donor you will be responsible for contacting Alberta One Call for a locate request to ensure the planting location meets current industry standards in relation to setbacks from above or below ground facilities including:

The City reserves the right to remove any plant material planted upon City titled property that has been installed without approval or is creating an unsafe recreational environment, is deemed unhealthy, hazardous or structurally unsafe.
