The Halifax Tree Project supports protection and sustainable management of urban trees and forests in Halifax by fostering community-based stewardship.

The original woodlands of the Halifax area, as part of the Acadian Forest Region, have been radically altered through a few hundred years of settlement and development. Further development often threatens the woodlands and trees we have left today. Our position is that many improvements can be made to better sustain the Halifax urban forest.

Guided by the Urban Forest Master Plan of 2013, the Halifax Regional Municipality is making great strides with expanded programming in sustaining the trees in the city. However, the municipality needs all the support it can get from its citizens to be able to make stronger progress. Halifax Tree Project exists to provide such support and to assist citizens to get involved in supportive initiatives.
