More trees coming to local parks

Frances Nunziata said in most recent email circular that many more trees will be coming to Weston parks “in order to replace trees that have been removed for construction and invasive species removals, to increase shade, and to improve the urban forest canopy.” Good news!

Interestingly, a Dutch-elm resistant strain will be planted in Grattan Park. Your correspondent had no idea that such a thing existed. Pray that they’ll find one for ash borer!

  1. Metrolinx took down thousands of trees to build UP Express. 170 of them were 30 cm in diameter or more, which requires under city by laws a 3 for 1 replacement. Metrolinx therefore promised they would plant 500 trees. We all expected they would put them near where they removed them. But the duplicitous types running Metrolinx planted 500 saplings at Humber arboretum and 3 now dead trees in Cruickshank park!

    1. Where’s the accountability? This community has suffered from the years of construction disruption, and we want trees: from Metrolinx!
