When you think of Hamilton, think green!

The City of Hamilton cares for hundreds of thousands of trees across the City. We maintain over 120,000 trees located in parks, open spaces and cemeteries. We also maintain over 300,000 street trees located within the road allowance of the 6,522 kilometres of city roads.

We respond 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to tree failures and storm damage.

We are responsible for:

  • Maintaining and removing trees
  • Planting street trees
  • Responding to storm damage
  • Protecting trees and improving the urban canopy

Storm damage and tree failures
When you report storm damage, we will come out to evaluate the damage, record information and take pictures. The jobs are completed according to priority. For example, trees fallen on energized conductors, or trees posing danger to people will be addressed first.

Please call (905) 546-CITY (2489) to report damaged trees.
