When you think of Hamilton,
The City of Hamilton cares for hundreds of thousands of trees across the City. We maintain over 120,000 trees located in parks, open spaces and cemeteries. We also maintain over 300,000 street trees located within the road allowance of the 6,522 kilometres of city roads.
We respond 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to tree failures and storm damage.
We are responsible for:
- Maintaining and removing trees
- Planting street trees
- Responding to storm damage
- Protecting trees and improving the urban canopy

Trees are important to creating and maintaining a clean and green city to live in. The City of Hamilton’s Street Tree Program is a fully funded program that offers a FREE tree to be planted on the City-owned portion of your property (known as the ‘road allowance’).
The sign-up deadline is January 15th for Fall plantings in the current year and June 15th for Spring plantings in the next year.
