Parks Operations staff planting a city-owned tree on the
residential boulevard in front of a local home.
When a tree is dropping leaves or seeds on your lawn, you might ask yourself why we have them in the first place! There are many concrete benefits to having a healthy boulevard tree in front of your home, such as:
Residential boulevard trees are usually healthier and live longer than trees in parks and along roads. This is typically because of the extra water and nutrition they receive from the homeowner's landscape care. Parks Operations thanks homeowners for helping to grow Grande Prairie’s urban forest!
You can see an example of different residential boulevard widths in a typical neighbourhood and the city-owned trees (red arrows) in the picture below.
This diagram also clearly illustrates how boulevard widths can change within a short span of distance. Within the space of one block, the grassed residential boulevard in front of these homes decreases from 5 meters (at point A) through 2.8 meters (point C) down to 1.3 meters (point B).
CALL don't CUT! Please double check your residential boulevard width before commencing any tree planting, removal or modification in your front yard!
