Help us reach the City goal of a 27% canopy coverage within New Westminster by 2030! By partnering with residents, the City continues with its goal of planting 3,300 trees on private land, and a further 8,500 on public land by 2030. Read the complete Urban Forest Management Strategy here.
The tree sale occurs bi-annually and provides an opportunity for New Westminster residents to purchase up to two trees for their property.

WHICH TREE IS RIGHT FOR ME?
Select trees based on their height and spread measurements (listed below). These numbers represent the tree's size at maturity to help you estimate the space requirements of your new tree.
Where and how do I plant my tree?
Please plant the tree at least 2 meters from any City property line. This will ensure that ownership of the tree remains clear throughout the tree’s life. Following a similar guideline for planting distances from adjacent private properties is also recommended.
Please do NOT plant trees on City property. Tree planting on City property is done by the City staff and takes into consideration existing or planned infrastructure, environmental needs, and neighbourhood characteristics.
