The City of Toronto has a goal of having 40% of its surface area covered by trees.
The Long Branch Neighbourhood Association is trying to help the City achieve this goal in our neighbourhood with dedicated programs such as:
- Tree for Free. Distributing free native species trees to residents
- Neighbourwoods. A joint project with UofT’s Faculty of Forestry to measure and catalogue the tree canopy in Long Branch.
- Tree Festival.
- Long Branch Remembers. Planting of new trees to commemorate veterans.
- Heritage Trees. Identifying specific trees to be classed as Heritage Trees and to be protected from harm.
