The department of Calgary Parks has identified 27 historic streetscapes in some of Calgary’s oldest communities that retain significance due to their original plantings.  Patterns of elm trees and lilac shrubs, for example, can become the object of protection.  These 27 streetscapes have been evaluated by Heritage Calgary and were added to Calgary’s Inventory of Historic Resources. Calgary Parks has a plan to ensure the long-term conservation of trees for future Calgarians to enjoy.
