White Rock seeks tree input

City launches survey to gather feedback on 'Urban Forest Management Plan.'

The City of White Rock is calling on residents to share their thoughts on the management of trees and other vegetation throughout the city, with the launch of an online survey.

According to a notice on the city’s website Friday, feedback from the survey will be used to help develop an Urban Forest Management Plan. The post describes an urban forest as “a community’s trees, shrubs, herbaceous low-growing perennial vegetation and soil” on both public and private land, and states the plan will “provide direction for the future maintenance of the urban forest.”

In addition to the survey, the city also had a booth dedicated to the forest management plan at the White Rock Vision Fair Sunday, with representatives answering questions and discussing the plan with residents.

Results from the survey and vision fair will be made public at an Urban Forest Management Plan forum, set for June 24, 5:30-7:30 p.m.‑ at the White Rock Community Centre, 15154 Russell Ave.
