  1. Morning. I am wondering if you are actually planting a tree of heaven at the event? It is an invasive species in Ontario and should really not be introduced especially in an area that is a landscape connector. http://www.trca.on.ca/dotAsset/36890.pdf please do not introduce this tree.

    Hello Leslie. The Friends’ event is a celebration of a mature tree that has provided shade and form to the railpath community for many years at the Wallace Avenue entry. Part of the reason for the removal is exactly the reasons you’ve mentioned and also to address the new design of this entry area. The City will be replacing the tree with a hardy Ontario tree specie. Thank you for your comments and hope you can join us next Tuesday evening.
