On November 18, many residents picked up their new (and free!) trees and shrubs at the Tree for Me event at the Annette Street Public Library. Native trees and shrubs were provided by the Toronto Parks and Trees Foundation. Residents learned how to plant and take care of their new woody friends and received free mulch to help get them off to a good start. Over 150 trees and shrubs were distributed. The goal is to increase Toronto’s tree canopy to 40% coverage. More trees in yards are a big part of that and every tree counts.

Thanks to Green 13 and the Annette Street Public Library for hosting the event and, of course, the Toronto Parks and Trees Foundation. And keep an eye out for the Spring 2018 Tree for Me event – not long from now at all!
