London Community News
Tree Canada and the City of London, in partnership with the Ontario Urban Forest Council and the Society of Municipal Arborists are hosting the 10th Canadian Urban Forest Conference, Oct. 2-4.
Acknowledging the importance of a national conversation with local and regional involvement on the issues around the urban forest, the funding support of the Ontario Trillium Foundation ensures an accessible and vital conference.
Bettianne Hedges, chair of the Thames Valley Grant Review, said “We welcome the opportunity for several local not-for-profit groups to gain greater public exposure and for the issue of urban forestry to be discussed in the broad community. There is an increasing awareness of the importance of forest cover to quality of life in urban environments and this conference will broaden the public’s knowledge and interest in this topic.”
With over 80 per cent of Canadian living in urban area, London will provide a focus for Canadian urban forest practices and allow a dialogue with professional and community groups on urban forest strategies, policies, technologies and management practices.
The 10th Canadian Urban Forest Conference has announced support for the national conference through the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
