Trees in the City have, besides environmental and economic benefits, also public and social benefits. Trees help to clean the air, control the climate, conserve energy, filtrate and retain water and provide wildlife habitat.

Did you know that the colour green is calming and relieves eye strain? Did you know that trees absorb and block sound, reducing noise pollution by as much as 40 percent?

The Meadow Lake Tree page was created to help give residents information about rules around City owned trees, responsibility of home owners, disease and pests and how to prevent them.

It is everyone's responsibility to take care of our urban trees so future generations can enjoy trees as we do today!
