City Owned Trees & Boulevards
Trees located on public boulevards, centre medians and parks are living assets owned by the City of Saskatoon. The City’s Parks Division protects and preserves over 100,000 City-owned trees as part of Saskatoon's urban forest. Not only do City-owned trees add to our community’s character, they are also valuable to our urban environment by reducing air pollution, filtering nitrates from ground water, lowering air temperatures and increasing property values.
Maintenance of City-owned trees located on boulevards, centre medians and in parks is the responsibility of the Urban Forestry Section.
Whether you are a homeowner wishing to re-landscape or a business owner planning to build near a City-owned tree, you need to comply with City regulations.

Urban Forestry is responsible for planting and maintaining all City-owned trees, including boulevard trees. Submit a tree planting request for new residential neighbourhoods, industrial areas or to replace a tree in an established neighbourhood.
You may garden on the boulevard adjacent to your home if you read the City of Saskatoon’s Boulevard Gardening & Maintenance Guidelines and complete the Boulevard Garden Agreement.
