I can’t, I won’t imagine my neighbourhoor and city without trees! Winnipeg is fortunate to have the largest remaining urban elm forest in North America, thanks to our amazing urban forestry department, Trees Winnipeg and previous councils who recognized the importance of funding the fight to protect our elms.
I am grateful for every tree in our city and every remaining moment we have with the ones we will inevitably lose.
And I’m also incredibly grateful for the relationships I’ve built with Mellanie Lawrenz and Lisa Forbes (my fellow Glenelm tree ladies) over the last year, and all the other smart, energetic, passionate people I’m getting to know through the Trees Please coalition.
