The Private Urban Forest Pop Up Exhibition!

Hello neighbour!

You might have noticed something special appearing on the Queen Alexandra boulevard trees – tree tags!

Trees are part of our everyday life which we often walk past and do not think too much about.

This exhibition intends to have you pause and consider the value of trees. It is also meant to help educate you about some of the challenges our boulevard trees are up against.

You might have noticed that there are a few repeat panels, so you don’t need to find each one or worry about missing out!

This exhibition is part of the Private Urban Forest project by the Tomorrow Foundation for a Sustainable Future. The exhibition is our way to say thank you for allowing us into your backyards to measure trees.

If you are not in Queen Alexandra, but would like to check out the tree tags, I suggest starting your journey at the Queen Alexandra Park 10722 73 Ave NW, Edmonton.

Feel free to use our hashtag #yegprivateforest or tag us on Twitter @tomorrowfdn 

If you would like your trees measured if you are in the Queen Alexandra neighbourhood or to learn more about the project, reach out to us at
