Pembroke is blessed with a beautiful urban forest, and local forester Robin Cunningham describes most of the common species found here, as well as some of the outstanding specimen trees we have in our city.

Trees in Pembroke
Communities In Bloom is a Canadian beautification and environmental awareness program that provides information and education in order to instill civic pride and community appreciation of our surroundings.
The City of Pembroke participated in this competitive program between 1998 and 2014, and has won the Provincial, the National and the International competitions for our population category! It has won the Best Land Reclamation Project in 2010 for our efforts at the Pembroke Waterfront.
In 2012, Pembroke also received a Special Criteria Award for outstanding achievement in Heritage Conservation.
The civic beautification program encourages residents and businesses of municipalities to take pride in their communities, and each year participants are judged on their efforts in 8 different categories, including: Tidiness, Community Involvement, Environmental Effort, Natural and Heritage Conservation, Urban Forestry, Landscaped Areas, Floral Displays, and Turf and Groundcover Areas.
Pembroke has received special recognition for its Floral Displays, Environmental Effort, Tidiness, Community Involvement and Heritage Conservation.
This program has helped Pembroke to blossom, and it is because of the efforts of the local committee that is made up entirely of VOLUNTEERS. They ensure that each year a local competition is held between the residents, businesses and institutions, that there is an annual Community Clean-up, and that the public is aware of the overall importance of this program. As of 2015, the local program was renamed Keeping Pembroke Beautiful, and the goal is to maintain the momentum and successes acheived!
If you would like to be part of this exciting program, please contact the City of Pembroke at 735-6821 x 1510.
