Hello all. Please see the invitation from the City of Ottawa, below. The City is beginning to work on an Urban Forest Management Plan. Once it is completed, Ottawa will join the many cities in North America which already have developed and implemented these plans.
Thriving Urban Forests are vital to promoting human health. Trees clean our air and water, cool our neighbourhoods, support habitant and biodiversity and control storm water run-off. When mature trees are lost, communities suffer both immediate and long term costs. Yet, while, “The City of Ottawa has many policies, programs, initiatives, and regulations related to trees” it “is lacking a comprehensive, long-term vision and strategic direction for protecting and enhancing the urban forest.”
This is an important initiative. The first round of public consultations will be held on November 24. I hope that Champlain Park will be well-represented.
