The Long Branch Neighbourhood Association has been very active in programs to preserve and re-build the tree canopy in Long Branch.
These programs have included Tree for Me – distribution of free native Canadian trees for residents to plant at home. Another is Long Branch Remembers – again distributing native species to commemorate veterans connected to Long Branch.
Our latest program is structured around Tree Stewardship.
What better way to celebrate Canada Day than a guided walk to learn about trees (physical distancing requirements will all be met so the walk is enjoyable and safe for all) or an on-line workshop to learn how to care for your young trees so they grow to become gentle giants (or healthy mid-size trees).
Registration is now open for the first programs in our new series. It is free thanks to a grant to the Long Branch Neighbourhood Association (LBNA) from the City of Toronto.
