A workshop on Oct. 22 in Milton brought members of the growers sector and municipal green space managers together to create a strategy on the supply and planting of trees in the urban landscape.

The select group of nursery growers and municipal green space managers arrived at shared objectives to improve to specification of and processes of purchasing trees and shrubs for planting in the urban environment.

Data from the workshop is presently being reviewed and analyzed. It is expected this will result in a strategy document that will outline key platforms to achieve improved success with urban tree and shrub plantings.  

Funding assistance for the process was obtained from the province’s Growing Forward 2 program.
