From 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

The increasing demand for nature-based solutions to climatic and other challenges represents an opportunity for the Canadian urban tree value chain. A value chain includes all activities required to create a product from start to finish. This growing demand, however, highlights several pressing questions. Who is part of the Canadian urban tree value chain? What are their key activities? And, what opportunities and challenges do they face?

Join presenters:
  • Tony DiGiovanni, Executive Director of Landscape Ontario
  • Jason Kropf of Moser Landscaping Group
  • Darby McGrath, PhD, Vineland Research and Innovation Centre’s Consortium Leader
