Green Streets

Please note that Tree Canada’s Green Streets program is on hold in 2017 as the Tree Canada team focuses on delivering our Tree to our Nature, Canada 150 Legacy program. We look forward to resuming Green Streets in 2018.

Green Streets, a flagship program of Tree Canada, is Canada’s only nationally-based municipal forestry innovation program.

Since 1994, more than 500 Canadian municipalities have received support from Tree Canada through the Green Streets program. The aim of the Green Streets program is to encourage leading-edge practices relating to trees in communities coast to coast, including:

  • Innovative urban forest planning
  • Policy and best management practices workshops
  • Outreach and educational activities on innovative practices
  • Innovative management tools to protect and maintain the community trees
  • Innovative urban design which showcases "green infrastructure"

Tree Canada encourages Canadian municipalities and Aboriginal communities nation-wide, as well as Business Improvement Associations (BIAs) in Vancouver, Montreal and Toronto to apply for funding in support of forward-thinking innovated projects.
