Working together with Hamilton youth and the community, we are GROWING our urban forest canopy.
Our urban forests – all the trees on our city streets, in parks, yards, fields, and green spaces, and along our ravines and escarpment – make our city a healthier and greener community!
- Urban trees clean our air, improve water quality and support healthy soils
- Urban trees increase property values, energy conservation, biodiversity, and improve our physical and mental health
- Urban trees make our streets safer and city more livable – filtering out highway pollution, reducing temperatures on sidewalks, and encouraging neighbours to get together outside!
