Event description

Description

If a tree falls in the forest – do you care? We think so.

Join us in thinking about the future of our city forests.

We know that protecting and managing the trees in our city is important. Not only is this vital for the environment and our health, it is imperative that we do this for the generations to come. In fact, the decisions we make now affects our urban forest for decades.

That’s why the City of Hamilton is preparing an Urban Forest Strategy to assess what the current situation is, what challenges we face together and what we need to do to protect the future of our trees.


What’s an Urban Forest?

An urban forest includes all of the trees and woodlands growing on both public and private lands including parks, street and yard trees, and natural areas within the urban and suburban areas of Hamilton.


Our Goal?

The Urban Forest Strategy will guide the protection, care and planting of the City’s trees and forests on public and privately-owned land in the urban area.


How Can You Get Involved?

The City of Hamilton is holding a workshop on the Urban Forest Strategy for interested and engaged stakeholders like you. We’d love it if you could join us and participate. The Workshop will begin with a Presentation at 6:45 pm.


Workshop Details:

  • Learn about Hamilton’s urban forest baseline study;
  • Discuss the draft goals and actions to sustain and enhance the urban forest;
  • Help us to prioritize the draft goals; and,
  • Discuss some of the opportunities and challenges in developing the strategy.
