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. 

Tree Maintenance & Inspections

Maintenance of City-owned trees located on boulevards, centre medians and in parks is the responsibility of the Urban Forestry Section.  

Tree Protection Requirements

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.

Tree Planting

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.  

Boulevard Gardens

You may garden on your boulevard if you read the Boulevard Gardening & Maintenance Guidelines and complete the Boulevard Garden Agreement.
