Urban Forest Management Strategy

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

To ensure our community maximizes the benefits supplied by our urban forest, Port Moody is currently in the process of developing an Urban Forest Management Strategy. The Urban Forest Management Strategy will provide an opportunity for the community to help establish a shared vision and priorities for urban forest management. The Strategy will address the climate action goals for the natural environment outlined in Port Moody’s 2020 Climate Action Plan.

The Urban Forest Management Strategy will:

  • establish a community-supported 30-year vision and goals for urban forest management;
  • offer short-, medium-, and long-term strategies and actions to achieve the community vision; and
  • anticipate changes to our urban forest from climate change as well as urban growth and development.

Work on the Urban Forest Management Strategy project began in November 2021. Public engagement will occur in two phases. During the first phase of engagement, we will seek your input to develop a shared vision and to identify opportunities to improve how we plan, manage, grow, protect, and partner with the community for the urban forest.

During the second phase in fall/winter 2022, we will ask for feedback on the draft Urban Forest Management Strategy and priorities for implementation. We anticipate the final Strategy will be completed by March/April 2023.

How can you get involved?

We hosted pop-up events in Rocky Point Park (May 27, 2022) and Bert Flinn Park (May 28, 2022). If you weren't able to join us, no problem, you can read the Trees in Port Moody display boards (PDF) that were posted in the parks during the pop-ups.
