The trees in the parkland region of the province grow in clumps and belts on the hillsides. These are largely deciduous , typically aspen , poplar , and willow . Many species of willow and other shrubs grow in virtually any terrain. On the north side of the North Saskatchewan River evergreen forests prevail for thousands of square kilometres. Aspen poplar , balsam poplar (or in some parts cottonwood ), and paper birch are the primary large deciduous species. Conifers include jack pine , Rocky Mountain pine, lodgepole pine , both white and black spruce , and the deciduous conifer tamarack .

The 1990s were a time of financial constraint as the Alberta government made budgetary cutbacks.  but they were also a time in which the university benefited from philanthropic support. The $11-million Timms Centre for the Arts, which began construction in 1993, was made possible by a large donation from its namesake, Albert Timms.  In 1998, Gladys Young's $-million donation to the university undergraduate scholarship fund in memory of Roland Young, who graduated from the U of A in 1928, was the largest private donation for undergraduate scholarships in the university's history.
