The Park Board tree sale has twenty-two varieties of trees available – fruit, flowering, shade, and conifer trees. You need to be a Vancouver resident to qualify.
Our tree sale is part of the first-ever Tree Week, April 2 to 10, and we expect it to become an annual tradition.

- Almond trees
- Cherry trees
- Fig trees
- Lilac trees
- Magnolia trees
- Maple trees
- Oak trees
Our arborists selected these trees because they thrive in Vancouver’s diverse growing conditions and provide many benefits like food and pollination. The trees are worth about $75 each and aren't suitable for balconies or indoors.

150,000 trees by 2020Our urban forest includes all the trees in parks, streets, and yards.
It's vital for:
- Cleaning our air
- Managing rain water
- Providing habitat for wildlife and birds
- Improving health and well-being
Our canopy – the amount of ground covered by tree leaves, as seen from the air – has steadily declined over the past two decades. Today, 18% of Vancouver is covered by tree canopy, a drop from 22% in 1995.
