The City of Prince George’s community and urban forests are an integral part of the city’s identity. Wherever you are in the city you’re never far from a forested park or greenbelt. The City’s Official Community Plan and the Quality of Life Survey both identify the City’s trees as an asset that contribute to an excellent quality of life for city residents and visitors.
Planting and care of the city’s urban forest is managed by the Parks & Solid Waste Department, taking care of forested greenbelts and natural parks, and care for trees in urban and park areas including streets, boulevards and parks. The City of Prince George employs Professional ISA Certified Arborists to preserve, protect, and enhance our urban forest. For more information on the care and protection of urban trees, please visit Urban Forestry and Trees.
The City's community forests are managed under a Provincial government licence, called a Community Forest Agreement, and more information on this can be seen at Community Forest..
