Adults & Families Programs

Adopt or Donate A Tree Program

The Town of Hanna believes that the trees are an important part of a community and should be protected.  There are many benefits of trees in urban landscapes, including:

  • improve air and water quality
  • reduce erosion
  • beautify the landscape
  • provide habitat for many varieties of birds and insects
  • damper noise and dust levels
  • provide shade
  • increase the value of property

In order to support and enhance Hanna’s tree inventory, some resources have been created to assist property owners to ensure the care and maintenance of trees for the enjoyment of present and future generations  It is important to note that the tree bylaw found below, states that no person can prune, remove or plant a tree on public property without authorization.  Property owners are responsible for maintaining their boulevards.  It is equally important to make note of the Adopt-a-Tree program.  This program is available to recognize or celebrate the life of a loved one or special event.  Trees are planted by Town Staff within Hanna’s parks, boulevards, cemetery and green spaces.

Finally, the Tree Planting, Maintenance and Protection Manual serves to support the Public Tree Bylaw #996-2018 and provide information for property owners to ensure the care and maintenance of trees.
