Toronto’s urban forest is made up of over 11.5 million trees on our streets, yards, parks, ravines and natural areas. It is critical green infrastructure that supports and sustains our health and well-being. They store 1.1 million tonnes of carbon, and sequester 35,165 gross tonnes of carbon each year. They remove 972 tonnes of pollution and prevents 23,081 tonnes of carbon emissions each year through energy savings.
Your donations will support on-the-ground action that will help protect us against some of the worst effects of climate change. It will support vital planting and stewardship initiatives on both public and private land, such as our numerous community planting and stewardship events, exciting new programs and partnerships on private land, and the urban forestry grants program. 100 per cent of your donation is directly used to sustain and grow our trees and urban forest.
