Newmarket’s urban canopy is made up of both public and private trees and is a valuable infrastructure asset. The replacement value of Newmarket’s trees exceeds $350,000,000. The 2016 Urban Forestry Study showed that these trees help to:
- Avoid more than 200,000 cubic metres of water runoff each year, a service valued at nearly $500,000.
- Reduce erosion, improve air quality, and increase property values.
- Reduce residential energy costs by more than $3,000,000 per year.
