YYC Tree

Calgary Parks is working with citizens to encourage the proper planting and maintenance of Calgary's urban forest. The City will provide education programs for community residents to encourage proper care and maintenance of their own private trees.

Trees are an important element of your garden's design. Whether you have inherited a mature tree, or plan on adding a new tree, our "Trees and What to Grow Under Them" will give you all the help and guidance you need to get the most out of incorporating trees into your garden design.

Led by experts from the Calgary Horticultural Society in partnership with Calgary Parks, you will learn about choosing the right tree for the space and what flowering shrubs, plants, groundcovers and ferns are adapted to shady conditions and will allow you to have a full, colorful garden. Our experts will guide you in how to create a diverse garden which will support healthy trees.
