Trees make our cities healthier, more resilient, enjoyable and prosperous.  Yet, many new urban trees don’t live longer than 10 years and many opportunities to plant new trees are missed. 

This session looks at the challenges trees face in the city – from competing urban realm priorities to environmental and political threats – and the possibilities for creating the greener urban environments that we all want. 

Moderator:  Mary Wiens, CBC Radio, Metro Morning

Keynote Speaker: Philip van Wassenaer, B.SC., MFC, Urban Forest Innovations

Panelists: Professor Sandy Smith, Faculty of Forestry, UofT.

*Our panel will also include speakers who provide a municipal and conservation authority perspective.
