List of Recommended Street Trees

While the List of Recommended Street Trees helps provide information on the trees that are proven to be the best performers in our city, the many microclimates and all the existing infrastructure need to be taken into consideration when choosing which tree to plant. It’s important to consider all factors that may affect a tree in the location that it’s being planted and it’s always better to get a tree that fits the spot well than it is to try and prune it to make it fit.

Included in the List are trees that do well in just about every microclimate in the city as well as trees that grow well in specific conditions that are part of one climate in the city, but might not be best for another.
The Urban Forestry Council works with key urban forest stakeholders, including the Department of Public Works and Friends of the Urban Forest for an annual review and update.
