On September 25th we celebrated National Tree Day in Ottawa with Tree Canada at the Canadian Museum of Nature by announcing the completion of our very first region-wide mapping analysis of our Tree Canopy, which was a collaboration between the City of Ottawa, the National Capital Commission and Ville de Gatineau. The project is a major milestone in the implementation of Ottawa’s Urban Forest Management Plan as this data will inform new urban tree canopy cover goals, identify “plantable” urban space, and develop a tree planting prioritization tool for our tree planting programs.
