The City of Hamilton urban forest includes more than 13,000 trees in public parks, green spaces, and rights-of-way. A healthy and safe urban forest provides wildlife diversity, higher property values, improved air and water quality, storm water management, energy savings from summer and winter extremes, and quality human health.
The mission of the City of Hamilton Municipal Arborist is to provide a high quality urban forestry program to the community, in conjunction with expert advice on private tree care. The Arborist cares for City trees and manages a regular line clearance tree trimming program for safe and reliable electric service.
The City of Hamilton Tree Advisory Board is charged with advising the City Council and administration on matters related to the City’s urban forest. Learn more about the Tree Board here.
