The Tree Advocacy Planting Program was implemented in 2000 by Toronto City Council to plant trees along city streets, arterial roads, in ravines and neighbourhood parks. Councillor Joe Pantalone was recognized as the City’s Tree Advocate to lead the program, which is administered through the City of Toronto’s Parks, Forestry and Recreation division.
