The Parks department is launching a new tree planting initiative targeting 25 communities each year over the next three years. These communities where chosen based on many factors, the main ones being storm damage, open canopy space and community interest. This will be replacing the current NeighbourWoods program. The plan is to ‘blitz’ communities by planting trees and providing the community with education activities.
How is this different from NeighbourWoods?
This program will not be asking residents to register their property for a tree, the tree locations will be pre chosen by Urban Forestry. If a tree location is on the back of walk of a property, that home owner will be notified a minimum of two weeks before the tree is planted. This program will also be planting in locations where dead City trees have been removed, as well as replacing storm damaged trees.

Here is information on the specific programs currently occurring in Mid-Sun (potential to book more through Kim):
Tree Paint Night – It’s the ‘poplar’ thing to do!
When: June 17th
Time: Tentatively 6:30-8pm
Where: Tentatively 50 Midpark Rise SE
Tree Paint Night gives community members the opportunity to let their creative juices flow while also learning about trees and tree culture. An artist will walk participants, step-by-step, through a world of trees to create a personalized work of art. During the midst of the creativity participants will learn about the parts, functions, and benefits of trees in our communities. This workshop engages not just tree owners, but all community members who appreciate the City of Calgary’s Urban Forest. The tree education and art developed through Tree Paint Night will establish a budding “tree hugger” in anyone who attends.
Maximum 15 people!
Registration will open in May!
Thanks for your interest! We hope you enjoy what your Community Association has to offer!
