Toronto a Tree City of the World

The City of Toronto is celebrating being named a ‘Tree City of the World’ for the fifth consecutive year.

In a release, the City explains the designation, awarded in partnership by the Arbor Day Foundation and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, recognizes Toronto’s commitment to ensuring sustainable and healthy urban forests, protecting local ecosystems and enhancing its resilience to climate change.

With a target of 40 percent canopy cover by 2050, the City says it plants approximately 120,000 trees each year while managing and maintaining the urban forest that makes up the 11.5 million trees found across the city.

Toronto is one of only 18 cities recognized in Canada, and one of 200 around the globe, as a tree city of the world.
