If you’re concerned about:
- loss of trees in your neighbourhood and city as a result of development, the emerald ash borer or other causes;
- planting and caring for trees to improve Ottawa’s environment;
- having a biodiverse urban forest that can withstand stresses;
- getting fruit, nuts and other tree products to people who can use them;
- improving how the city, homeowners and businesses are managing trees on their properties;
- or other tree issues;
you might want to have a say on the City of Ottawa’s Urban Forest Management Plan.
The city is creating a comprehensive plan to enhance and protect Ottawa’s tree canopy. That includes trees on public as well as private property–in parks, yards, on streets and on commercial property, for example–as well as tree habitat.
Launched in September, the process continues with public consultations on Tuesday, November 24, 2015.
