Tree Inventory is in full swing in Crown Point and McQuesten! Volunteers are coming out for some fun outdoor time identifying and measuring trees in these neighbourhoods, with the goal of understanding the makeup of our urban forests and how our trees help with air quality.
Volunteers and staff have measured 100 trees in just two weeks of inventory. Our largest tree so far is a Silver Maple more than 24 metres tall with a diameter of 96 centimetres! Our summer intern, Sean, is walking through the neighbourhoods collecting air quality data during inventory, and we will see how this data correlates with our tree distribution.
Come on out for a walk and learn a bit more about the trees in your neighbourhood and the Trees Please project. Join us in Crown Point at 7:00 pm on Tuesdays and 10:00 am on Wednesdays, and in McQuesten at 7:00 pm on Wednesdays and 10:00 am on Thursdays.
