Tree Species List

This is the list of potential tree species. Please note that tree selection is subject to availability and site-suitability.

Residents can choose a species on their own, or wait to see the arborist’s recommendation after pre-inspection. Forestry Services work with residents to ensure that they receive a tree of preference.
