In 2015 and 2016, with the support of the TD Green Streets Grant awarded by TD Friends of the Environment Foundation and Tree Canada, Live Green Toronto, a program of the City of Toronto, and the Canadian Tree Fund, LEAF had the opportunity to work closely with the City of Toronto and the Danforth community to develop an Adopt-a-Street-Tree Pilot Program for 142 new street trees planted between Woodbine and Victoria Park. Partners included included Danforth East Community Association, Danforth Mosaic BIA, Danforth Village BIA and Danforth Village Residents Association.
The objective of this pilot program was to foster a collaborative approach to protection and care of the city’s vulnerable street trees and to develop community tree care guidelines that can be replicated across Toronto. The success of this pilot led to future projects in Bloordale and the Junction.
