Tree Removal and Replacement Archive

Campus and Community Planning works with landscape architects, architects, developers, UBC Building Operations and arborists to protect UBC's urban forest.

UBC takes pride in the diversity and amount of trees it has planted on campus since 1925. There are approximately 8,000 trees planted and over 10,000 native trees in natural settings. The University has professional arborists who manage this urban forest. 

UBC encourages tree retention, or conservation through relocation on campus, whenever possible.  However, as part of the natural process of ageing and renewal, some trees decay and are at risk of falling. From time to time, under the guidance of UBC’s arborists, dying or decaying trees are removed before they become a safety hazard. 

Notices of such activity will be posted here.
