Invitation from LEAF

A significant portion of our urban forest canopy was lost in December’s ice storm. LEAF (Local Enhancement & Appreciation of Forests) and TreesPlease (Annex Residents’ Association) would like to bring together Toronto’s community tree groups to brainstorm how we can join forces to increase tree planting across the city in the coming year to mitigate these losses.  We invite you to join us for a meeting Thursday, February 6th at City Hall to discuss ways in which we can collaborate in 2014!

We're encouraging all local tree groups to attend.

 Light refreshments will be served.
