The rebate, for properties within city limits, is for the purchase of a tree up to $50.
The city said it will use the strategy to gather baseline information about the state of the urban canopy, develop a long-term vision and adopt goals to grow and manage the urban forest.
The program can also calculate ecosystem benefits provided by the trees, such as estimates of air quality, carbon and stormwater benefits.
Work on the project could begin as soon as this month and is expected to be completed in May 2022.
The work is expected to take two weeks. There will be limited parking on Memorial Avenue and a partial road closure may be necessary, the city said.
Parksville council voted to create an urban forest strategy (UFS) to guide the planting and managing of trees on public and private land.
