Trees

UBC takes pride in the diversity and amount of trees it has planted on campus since 1925.

Trees are an important part of our campus’ look and feel, and we have been actively managing this large ur­ban forest for close to 100 years. They provide shelter from the rain when walking between classes and shade to work under on warm days.

There are approximately 8,000 planted trees and over 10,000 native trees in their natural set­tings. UBC encourages tree retention, or conservation through relocation on campus, whenever possible. We work with landscape architects, architects, developers, arborists and landscape technologists to protect UBC’s forested areas.
