Trees provide numerous environmental benefits and also increase our sense of safety, community, and neighborhood pride. Trees Winnipeg celebrates the role of trees in our communities at Arbor Day - a free family event that draws visitors from all over Winnipeg.
We also celebrate the hard-working arborists who are dedicated to preserving our urban forest. Arbor Day provides an opportunity for guests to meet local ISA-Certified arborists and learn about Winnipeg’s growing arboriculture industry, career training, job opportunities, and get free tree care advice. Visitors young and old can be an “arborist for a day” and can safely try tree climbing with equipment and guidance from the professionals! In addition to tree climbing, you can try a ride in the bucket trucks, create your own souvenir in the craft tent, and watch the masters create a work of art right before your eyes (with a chainsaw)!
Every year, we rotate Arbor Day to celebrate trees in a different Winnipeg neighborhood. This year, we’re excited to host Arbor Day in beautiful St. John’s Park. Come join us in celebrating Arbor Day!
