The City of Toronto currently manages, with public funds, over 7,400 hectares of green space and an urban forest of over 3 million trees.
Since 2002 the Toronto Parks & Trees Foundation has been working to double Toronto’s tree canopy to offset the effect of climate change and pollution.
We do this by a combination of planting, raising awareness & education. Every donation, sponsorship and volunteer helps us plant more trees, shrubs and bulbs in our city.
By targeting the neighborhoods and urban areas which will most benefit from being green, we help beautify Toronto at the same time as we make our city more environmentally stable.
The Foundation looks for solutions that contribute to the three key elements of sustainability: environment, economy and community.
