Using Native Trees and Plants to Green Our Community

Let’s do our part in Ward 1 to create healthy, biodiverse neighbourhoods for all living things!

"Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree." — Emily Brontë

Trees are important to the residents of ward 1. We love their beauty, the shade they offer and the habitat they provide to so many different creatures. At a time of changing climate, their value has taken on extra importance. Join us in celebrating trees and in efforts to increase our urban canopy with native trees
