Notice of Motion on The Conservation of Trees on Private Properties

Updated: 3 days ago

March 18th Update

We are thrilled to share that the conservation of private trees Notice of Motion brought forward by Councillors Wong & Chabot has been successfully passed by City Council. This decision stands as a significant step in addressing Calgary’s diverse climate needs and the concerns expressed by our communities regarding the importance of mature trees throughout the established areas.

For context on the motion that was approved; this is not for the direct implementation of a private tree bylaw. Rather, this notice of motion is to have City administration scope and review other Canadian jurisdictions’ existing private tree conservation and/or incentive bylaws to see what works, and what would be most suitable for Calgary’s context. Then based on the information found, public consultation, and reviews of past research - prepare options for potential future private tree conservation or incentive bylaws that would be most suitable for Calgary with estimates on the implementation costs. The information gathered will be provided in Q1 2025 for Council to decide on the next steps.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to each resident who actively contributed to the discussion and provided invaluable comments about the importance of tree canopies in their communities throughout this process. Your engagement serves as a driving force behind our collective efforts to create a brighter future for all Calgarians.

As we move forward, we invite you to stay tuned for further updates on the progress of this NoM. Together, we will continue to work to build a better, more prosperous future for generations to come.

Thank you for your  support and dedication to our shared vision of a stronger, more climate resilient Calgary.
