Local Tree Loss Data & Tools
How has tree loss affected your neighbourhood and others throughout Winnipeg? Based on what we see happening on our own streets, we know there has been significant public tree loss over the past few years. What do the numbers say?
You can use these tools, developed by Trees Please Winnipeg Coalition members and based on City of Winnipeg open data, to see just how severe the urban canopy crisis is.
We have two tools that compare the public tree (boulevards, parks, etc.) inventory from 2015 to 2021.
With this Interactive Tree Loss Map, you can see trees lost and added (by species) since 2015. Zoom into specific wards or neighborhoods to examine what has occurred in terms of tree removals and planting since 2015. Instructions on how to use the map can be accessed by clicking on the “How to Use Mango Maps” tab at the top of the map window. A brief description of the data source and methodology can be accessed by clicking on the Methodology tab.
We’ve also added a temperature overlay to the map, which shows how hot a typical July day in 2017 was.
