Salt Lake City’s Urban Forest

Keep Your Cool

The first visitors and residents of this valley found a harsh and arid landscape and planted and cared for trees to improve their environment

Salt Lake City’s Urban Forest, containing over 90,000 trees growing along city streets and in parks and natural areas, is a legacy from the first residents of Salt Lake City to those who live and visit here today. The first visitors and residents of this valley found a harsh and arid landscape and planted and cared for trees to improve their environment. Since then, the generations that have come after have enjoyed the lasting benefits of an established urban forest.

From cooling shade to inspiring beauty, Salt Lake City’s urban tree canopy cleans our air, quiets urban noise, and calms not only our valley winds, but our minds as well. Learn more at: Urban Forestry | Public Lands Department (slc.gov)
