Tree Protection


TREE PROTECTION

Wednesday, September 24, 2014, is NATIONAL TREE DAY.

Mark Cullen provides an extensive and interesting overview of organizations and studies: “Branch out and Celebrate National Tree Day”

Craig Alexander, chief economist at TD, concludes their urban trees study with these words: “Maintaining our urban forests makes sense, as every dollar spent on maintenance returns $1.35 to $3.20 worth of benefits to residents of the City of Toronto. The cost of savings produced by our urban forests make it clear that keeping the green on our street, keeps the green in our wallets.”
