Planting our Future: A Tree Toolkit for Communities was developed in conjunction with a tree planting program of the BC government to reduce greenhouse gases. While the funding program has been completed, the Guide provides information, including an overview of the tools and strategies to help communities enhance the value of their urban forests and to address challenges that they may be facing.
Planting our Future includes information on the community, residential, environmental and health benefits of trees. The guide also covers issues and challenges with strategies to address key areas. The key areas are: conserving existing treed environments, preparing and enhancing the urban forest for the future and increasing understanding and support for urban forests. The guide also provides twelve urban forestry goals.
