Liberty Village is going to be the next community which is starting an Adopt a Tree program to give
our newly planted trees a fighting chance!
The Adopt-a-Street-Tree program is a collaborative effort between LEAF (Local Enhancement & Appreciation
of Forests), the City of Toronto, and community groups. It encourages and guides community tree-care,
helping the city’s most vulnerable trees grow to their leafiest potential so that Torontonians can enjoy
the numerous benefits that a lush urban canopy provides.
Join the Liberty Village Adopt-A-Tree program and help keep the street’s newly planted trees alive through
their precarious first four years when their root systems are still shallow.
It’s easy – sign up for a specific young tree and from spring to fall make sure it gets five gallons of water
each week when there’s been no or insufficient rainfall for its first four years. It’s a terrific thing to do
with kids or while walking the dog. If you’re interested in being a “tree parent/family” or have any questions,
send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll launch soon!
