The City Wants
MORE TREES

The City of New Westminster has introduced a city-wide Urban Forest Management Strategy that will provide direction for protecting, maintaining and enhancing New Westminster’s urban forest. The strategy is supported by a Tree Protection and Regulation Bylaw passed on January 13, 2016.

The Urban Forest Management Strategy identifies a comprehensive set of 38 actions to be implemented over 20 years
to reverse the current 1.5% per year decline in canopy coverage and increase New Westminster’s tree canopy cover from 18%
to a target of 27%. Without proactive measures, the city will experience substantial loss in urban amenities, air quality, shade, urban ecology and other important benefits.

The Urban Forest Management Strategy also includes a new tree bylaw that protects and regulates the removal of trees
on private and City-owned land. The introduction of the Tree Regulation and Protection Bylaw will help ensure New Westminster is in step with other Metro Vancouver municipalities and will assist the City in its goal of sustaining and increasing its urban forest.
