We Want to Hear From You!

The City of Langford is in the process of developing its first Urban Forest Management Plan (UFMP). The UFMP will identify the community’s 25‑year vision and values in managing its urban forest and will set out the objectives that will guide the City in addressing the ranging challenges now facing urban trees and their maintenance.

The UFMP will contain tailored actions the City will seek to implement in achieving the community-led vision for its urban forest over the next 25 years. The UFMP will include:

  • Baseline information on the current state of Langford’s urban forest
  • A long-term vision for the City’s urban forest
  • Program goals, recommendations, and targets
  • Operational plans, policies and specifications to support the Plan’s implementation.

Langford’s urban forest consists of all trees, forested areas, plants, soils, and ecosystem components located within the city boundary. Many types of trees make up the urban forest, including public street trees, park (i.e., ornamental) and woodland trees, as well as the trees on private land in both urban and rural landscapes. Langford’s trees are an important community asset, and the City is developing its first UFMP in recognition of this value.

The urban forest is essential to Langford’s character, biodiversity, climate resilience, health and well-being. The UFMP will help ensure the community maximizes the benefits supported by the urban forest, providing a framework and specific recommendations designed to achieve fair balance between the diversity of interests held in urban forest management.

This project is being funded through the province's Local Government Climate Action Program. The Local Government Climate Action Program (LGCAP) provides local governments and Modern Treaty Nations with predictable and stable funding. This funding supports local climate action that reduces emissions and prepares communities for the impacts of a changing climate.

The development of the UFMP is occurring over several phases, including two phases of public engagement. The first phase of public engagement, launching November 1st, 2023, will seek community input and insights to inform the vision and strategic directions of the draft Urban Forest Management Plan. The second phase, targeted for Spring 2024, will collect feedback on the draft plan. To stay informed, please subscribe to the project page. Your input is valuable in shaping the future of Langford’s urban forest!

We want to hear from you! Your input is crucial in setting up a shared vision and priorities in informing Langford’s urban forest management plan. Stay tuned for future opportunities for public engagement!
