Urban Forest Management Plan

Urban Forestry Short Term Implementation

Final Report

Urban Forest Management Plan

Oak Bay's trees and green spaces are a key part of our community's identity but as our trees age and our community develops, there will be changes in our urban forest. In order to manage that change, the District of Oak Bay has initiated an Urban Forest Management Strategy to guide the long term health and distribution of trees in our community. The plan will provide direction for key activities including tree canopy cover growth, new plantings, tree health and maintenance, tree protection and budgeting within District limits.

Implementation of the Urban Forest Management Plan will increase the benefits produced by the urban forest for the community and will complement Oak Bay's broader community goals for climate change , natural environment, neighbourhood, built environments, parks, open spaces and transportation.
