Trees cool our streets, reduce energy bills, attract wildlife, beautify neighborhoods, clean the air, capture carbon emissions, and help reduce flooding! However, our community’s trees are being lost to development, hurricanes, and natural mortality. To reverse this downward trend, in September 2020 the Boynton Beach City Commission adopted the goal of planting 3,000 trees per year for a total of 45,000 trees by 2035. The City promotes the planting of native trees as much as possible.
In 2022, the City conducted a Tree Inventory of 11,309 trees and palms in City parks, on public properties, and along streets in the public rights-of-way. Visit our Tree Plotter mapping tool to explore results of the Tree Inventory and learn about the City’s urban forest.
