Regina Designated Tree City of the World for Second Consecutive Year
The City of Regina is proud to be recognized as a Tree City of the World by the United Nations for the second year in a row.
Regina is one of 120 cities accepted globally into the Tree Cities of the World program. The select group of cities is recognized by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization and Arbor Foundation for meeting core standards on the care and planning of urban trees and forests.
The vision of the program is to connect cities around the world to a network dedicated to sharing and adopting the most successful approaches to managing city trees and forests.
Regina has more than 500,000 hand-planted trees that help with flooding, natural cooling, plus remove the C02 equivalent of 3,330 mid-sized vehicles from the atmosphere each year. Our urban forest supports our goal of becoming 100 per cent renewable city by 2050.
Not only does our urban forest contribute to the beautification of our city and community pride, it also contributes to our mental and physical wellbeing.
