Surrey's urban forest in fall

Trees are part of a healthy city. They have numerous social, environmental, and economic benefits, and contribute to improved quality of life for residents and visitors. All of the trees in Surrey (on both public and private property) are a part of Surrey's urban forest.

We protect Surrey's urban forest through the Tree Protection Bylaw and Shade Tree Management Plan.

Get more information about trees located on private property, including tree cutting permits, planting replacement trees and how to get tree vouchers - whichever your option, consider the impact you have on Surrey's urban forest. City Arborists will work with you to make sure we're all working towards tree protection in Surrey.
