Community Science Tree Check Form

Canada’s valued forests and urban areas are threatened by invasive forest insects and pathogens that impact these ecosystems, the economy, and society, including human health. Prevention, detection and monitoring strategies, including outreach and community monitoring programs, provide high return-on-investment when managing invasive species.

The goal of this project is empower Canadians with the knowledge and tools to monitor the health of their trees, and increase priority pest surveillance efforts across the nation through community data collection.

Please use this form to report on the health of your community trees. Each report has room for 3 different tree types in your community (i.e. TREE TYPE 1: Maple, TREE TYPE 2: Oak, TREE TYPE 3: Hemlock).
There is no limit to the number of entries you can submit. If you are only reporting one species of tree, please leave all other TREE TYPE sections blank and skip to Question 39.

Under the Plant Protection Act, any report of a potential quarantine pest may require follow-up by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency. By completing the form you agree that should a species of quarantine significance be reported in your tree check form, CFIA has the authority to contact you or visit the site for inspection.

If you have any questions please email Derissa Vincentini at dvincentini@invasivespeciescentre.ca
