The Outdoor Experience

This Weekend in the Star, Mark Cullen wrote an article about trees and their transformative power for citys like Toronto. I couldn’t agree more with what he has to say about our trees.  I don’t know that I agree with an umbrella tree planting organization for Toronto, since independent groups exist with varying ideas and priorities and it’s their independence that gives them the flexibility they need to carry out their specific agendas, but it’s worth a look.  With our urban canopy being attacked from the Emerald Ash Borer (EAB), green space paving, pollution, and general stress, Toronto faces the very real possibility of losing tens of thousands of trees over the next few years.  If we are to keep our reputation as a “City Within a Park” we need to take affirmative and aggressive action now to plant new trees and minister to our ageing and ailing urban forest.
