LO members recently joined forces with Trees for Life to install 80 caliper trees at Toronto’s Archbishop Romero Catholic High School.

Trees for Life was founded to promote urban forests by green industry booster Mark Cullen. Its goal is to double the GTA’s tree canopy by 2050.

LO president Phil Charal represented the association at a ceremony including fellow supporting organizations Toronto and Region Conservation Authority, TD Friends of the Environment, Black Creek Conservation Project, Toronto Botanical Gardens and the City of Toronto. Member company Dr. Landscape also participated in the planting, Hermanns Contracting supplied soil and Brookdale Treeland Nurseries supplied the trees.
