Trees Please Project Update

Oh, the glorious trees in our neighbourhood! And they really do shine this time of year; I love how the low-slanting, gentle autumn sunlight is filtered through crimson and gold.
It coats everything with mellow.

If you love our trees, too, you might like this tidbit from the Annex Residents' Association:
"This summer saw the successful completion of the second phase of a four-year program to take an inventory of all the trees in the Annex. Our objective is to develop an in-depth understanding of the current state of the urban forest in our community and assist the City in creating a management plan to maintain and improve the existing tree canopy.
The significant achievements this year were identification and location of Ash trees under attack by the Emerald Ash Borer.  We also identified 82 spots on private property where trees could be planted, and offered homeowners a $50 discount off the LEAF backyard tree planting price.  
More Volunteers are needed to help complete the project; if you would like to help but do not have time to Volunteer, you may make a financial donation.  Donations greater than $20 will receive a charitable donation receipt for tax purposes."
