Urban Forestry Strategic Management Plan


To provide a proactive approach to the management and stewardship of the Town of Oakville’s urban forests south of Dundas Street.


The Urban Forest Strategic Management Plan is a 20 year plan that sets out the steps necessary to achieve short medium long-term goals for the urban forest within the framework of the town’s official plan. The 20 year period (2008-2027) is supported by a series of four management plans of five year duration. Annual operating plans complement the five year plan. The principle of adaptive management permits flexible tree operations by town staff that responds to changes in the environment, the community and the direction of town policy.
