Mulching is incredibly important for urban trees and shrubs! Aside from being aesthetically pleasing, mulch also has many benefits that can improve the overall health of your garden.
A group of five Young Urban Forest Leaders (YUFL) including Megan, Willa, Mahlaini, Amy and myself, Laura, hosted a one-hour tree tour on Sunday, August 27th at Berczy to officially launch the Adopt-a-Park Tree Program with Friends of Berczy Park.
The trees along Danforth Avenue have been experiencing a fresh new lease on life thanks to the local residents and businesses taking part in an Adopt-a-Street-Tree Project. Their tending and care has given these trees the attention they need to establish themselves and grow for years to come.
I was born on June 4th, 2013. I had a quiet saplinghood, and unlimited potential. One day I would reach high. One day I would stand tall. Unfortunately, I would not.
Trees calm and trees focus. Trees improve our moods, they brighten our environment, and they add music to our day. Trees are all around us and their subliminal benefits make the greatest impact; they can be a gateway to a stronger connection with nature. But they can also be a gateway to a stronger connection with ourselves and our communities. Tree adopters in the Bloordale neighbourhood have been noticing these benefits themselves, and the voice of the trees speaks good news for the community.
