Urban Forestry plants trees on City street allowances fronting residential properties free of charge. As your City Councillor, I would like to encourage you to take advantage of the free tree planting service that is provided by the City. Trees provide many benefits to us. Trees filter air pollution, reduce storm water run-off, generate oxygen, and increase property values. Trees can also have the added benefit of slowing traffic down. Please contact 311 or visit the City of Toronto website to request a free tree.
