Surrey, B.C. – The City of Surrey is announcing dates for the final online tree sales planned for 2023. The next sale will open on August 23 at 9:00 A.M. and close on September 6, with a tree pick-up date of September 17. The final sale of the year will open on September 27 at 9:00 A.M. and close on October 11, with a tree pick-up day of October 22.
“The City of Surrey is committed to growing and enhancing the urban forest, which includes all of the trees in the city—on public and private land—and the connected vegetation, soils and wildlife,” said Mayor Brenda Locke. “The tree sale program incentivizes residents to plant more trees on private land as part of a comprehensive strategy to care for Surrey’s urban forest. It is a very popular program so residents are encouraged to save the dates and take advantage of purchasing an affordable high-quality tree for their property.”
The City of Surrey hosts four online tree sales every year. Trees are sold on a first come, first served basis. All trees are $20 (includes taxes). Purchases are made online and later picked up from the Surrey Operations Centre (6651 148 Street). Each sale has up to 1,000 trees available for purchase, while supplies last. Varieties may include maples, dogwoods, magnolias and assorted fruit trees which all grow well in Surrey.
