May 3, 2022 - The City of Surrey has an ambitious plan to increase tree planting on public property by 20% in 2022, and was recently recognized as a ‘Tree City’ for the third consecutive year.

The City is increasing tree planting on public property by 20% to 12,300 trees (not including seedlings) this year. That is an increase from 2021, when the City planted 10,272 trees on city property (not including 7,240 seedlings).

Additionally, another 4,000 trees are expected to be sold this year through the city’s Tree Sale Program. These tree sales allow Surrey residents the opportunity to purchase quality trees at an affordable price to help grow the City’s urban forest. Learn more at surrey.ca/treesale.

The City was also recently recognized as a member of the Tree Cities of the World program for the third consecutive year. This program recognizes Surrey’s commitment to celebrating, properly maintaining, and sustainably managing our urban forest. Find out more about the Tree Cities of the World Program.
