Root for Trees

Edmonton needs more trees! We want you to help us plant more trees to double the size of our urban forest. 

Root for Trees is an enhanced tree planting initiative which intends to increase tree planting within the city through continued partnerships with corporations, individual residents and community groups. The annual target of this initiative is to plant an additional 16,000 trees annually on public and private land.

Every year in June, Tree Fest invites you to come plant trees to a live bluegrass band and register for the kids tree-athlon, the only race of its kind in Edmonton!

This year the Root for Trees Festival is being held in Beaumaris Park (100 Street and 155 Avenue), Saturday, June 13 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.

Have fun in nature and plant trees with us at a free family event! Root for Trees Fest is an annual event which highlights the City of Edmonton Root for Trees Initiative – a program that makes it easier for you to plant trees in our city.

Activities include the annual Tree-athalon, musical guests Doug Hoyer and Jesse and the Dandelions, tree planting, and community displays.
