Urban Forest

One Million Trees logo

Currently Windsor has nineteen percent forest coverage.

The City of Windsor is committed to protecting and expanding the urban forest. One of our outreach programs has a two-pronged approach to reach its goals: planting and partnerships.

The Parks Department plants thousands of trees every year, including in partnership with environmental groups, such as Scouts, Essex Region Conservation Authority and Tree Canada. Many of these trees are grown in the municipal nursery using locally sourced native Carolinian seeds. The municipal nursery provides native Carolinian trees that help diversify the urban forest.
