We’re embarking on a journey to make Toronto greener, one person at a time – and YOU can help!
Toronto is setting out on an ambitious plan to plant 3.8 million trees across our city over 10 years. Every Tree Counts is the Toronto Parks and Trees Foundation’s capital fundraising and public awareness campaign in support of this goal. The Foundation will engage all Torontians to take part in this campaign to plant trees across Toronto and use the tree mapping, tracking and counting tool called Citytrees. The City's Strategic Forest Management Plan, adopted by City Council in 2013, promotes the goal of increasing canopy cover to 40% over the next 50 years with one of the main ways to achieve being to plant trees.
City of Toronto, Urban Forestry plants approximately 100,000 trees on public land annually but the greatest availability of land to plant trees is on private property. That's why the public's participation is critical to achieving the tree canopy goals and Mayor Tory’s tree planting targets. Thanks to The Citytrees App, we can track our progress as a city, and count our way towards this shared goal.
