LEAF volunteers, project partners, board members and staff came together for a delightful night of celebration and mingling as we reflected on our many TREEmendous accomplishments of 2018!
LEAF and the Town of Richmond Hill are thrilled to launch this self-guided tree tour, showcasing the native tree species located in the beautiful Lake Wilcox Park.
The fall season is a great time to walk through our urban forest to see all the beautiful changing colours, and it is also a great time to add to our urban forest by planting new trees! Throughout September, October and November, our residential planting team worked hard to plant and deliver trees and shrubs to property owners across Toronto, Oakville, Ajax, and York Region!
Colonel Samuel Smith Park is famous as a bird watching hotspot and for its outdoor ice rink trail, but this year it became the site of another exciting development! In the spring and fall of 2018, LEAF hosted a special two-part Tree Tour series in this park. Tour participants had the delightful opportunity to learn seasonal tree identification tips from our certified arborist.
It’s hard to believe that yet another season is almost complete in our Urban Forest Demonstration Gardens. Although we’re sad that we can’t get our hands dirty all year long, we can take the cold weather as an opportunity to reflect on our successful season.
