Tree Tour and Shrub Giveaway

Description: Trees. They are the biggest plants on earth. They give us oxygen, store carbon, and give an abundance of life to every animal that lives in a forest. The benefits and importance of trees was explained to a group of people who took a tour with members of LEAF, (Local Enhancement & Appreciation of Forests) an organization based in Toronto, through Phin park at Danforth and Donlands. Led by Lam Tran, she and several LEAF volunteers explained why white pines, black and red oak are important, even in a small park like Phin where they can provide shelter and food for small animals; not to mention what they can do for us. At the end of the tour, LEAF gave away some beautiful shrubs to everyone who attended. Find out more at www.yourleaf.org
