Resident Vincent de Grandpré brought to our attention a program called Community Canopy. Registration is now available for all Toronto residents.
The City of Toronto has partnered with the Arbor Day Foundation to connect Toronto residents with free trees through an innovative online mapping tool that may take the guesswork out of where to plant a tree on a specific property. Through the Community Canopy Program residents can use the software interface to identify the ideal planting location that will maximize the air, water, energy, and carbon benefits of their tree.
Trees available are: American Linden (Basswood), Eastern Redbud, Northern Red Oak, Smooth ServiceberrySugar, MapleSwamp, and White OakWhite Pine
Visit www.arborday.org/toronto to reserve your free tree today.
