Growing the Tree Canopy in Ward 29

Trees are beautiful and they also have many other benefits including:

–  cooling our homes in summer saving us money on electricity for air conditioning.

–  cooling our streets and protecting us from sun’s burning rays

–  protect soils from erosion

–  protect us from winds in winter

 

Of course, they also help out air quality by:

– trapping dust,

– absorb harmful gases and other pollution

– generating oxygen

Trees increase property values.   The City of Toronto appreciates the importance of all this and has a strong urban forestry program.

Toronto is a city of trees. More than four million trees dominate our ravines, line our boulevards and beautify our parks. Six million more trees are located on private property.

But our urban forest cannot be taken for granted.  The Emerald Ash Borer is just the latest blight threatening our green city.
