Fall 2018-Winter 2019 Tree Removals and Replacement

Vancouver has a rich heritage of trees that are deeply meaningful to people, and the City works to keep our shared urban forest healthy, beautiful and growing. We work to actively preserve the trees we have, replace the ones that die or are removed through development, and plant new trees for future generations to enjoy.

To prepare this site for construction of the new Oakridge Centre, a series of underground utilities and access roads needs to be built. As part of this process, there is no alternative but to make changes to the landscape and remove a number of trees.

In total 222 trees will be removed during this phase of site preparation. These include a variety of species such as Oak, Maple, Cedar, Plane, Linden, Pine, and Cherry with an average diameter of 33 centimeters.

These trees will be replaced with over 1,000 new trees, planted throughout a new nine-acre park and additional outdoor public spaces, scheduled for completion in 2026.
