Urban Forestry Operations


The City of London Forestry Operations department has the role of maintaining all trees on City property including boulevards, parks and woodlands.  This includes tree removals, trimming, tree planting, consensual tree removals and pest management.  Our staff of professional Arborists  inspect and evaluate City trees on a regular basis to ensure City trees are safe and maintained with current arboriculture practices. 

If any City tree on the boulevard, park, or woodland is in need of maintenance or inspection, please call our Forestry Dispatcher and we will come out for an inspection and recommend the proper course of action for that tree.  Only City staff or their designate are allowed to do work on City trees.  If there is an emergency tree concern after normal working hours, please call our emergency dispatch number at 519-661-4965 and your concern will be addressed.

City trees located on the boulevard are protected under the Boulevard Tree Protection By-Law.  Information with respect to what can and cannot be done to City trees can be found in the Boulevard Tree Protection By-law linked below. 

All other City trees, those in parks and woodlands are protected under the new Tree Protection By-Law and it can be found in the Tree Protection By-law linked below.

If you have questions as to if a tree does belong to the City, please give our Forestry Dispatcher a call or you can check yourself using the City of London Tree inventory system.

Members of the Forestry Operations Team are available Monday to Friday 8:30 am to 4:00 p.m. 

For Emergency response please contact the City of London's 24 hour dispatch line at 519-661-4965
