Mayor Miller proclaims May 1, Trees Across Toronto Day
  
Mayor David Miller proclaimed May 1 as Trees Across Toronto Day and urges every
Torontonian to help replenish our urban forest.

"Our trees are increasingly threatened," said Mayor Miller. "To sustain
Toronto's urban forest, we need to create a new generation of trees that will
help to make our city beautiful and healthy. The best way to do that is for
people to participate in Trees Across Toronto and other planting events."

There are four ways to participate in Trees Across Toronto. People can plant a
tree at one of the six sites across the city, plant a tree on their own
property, plant a tree virtually on the Web or make a donation by calling
416-392-1111. For more information on Trees Across Toronto, call Parks and
Recreation at 416-392-3866 or visit http://www.toronto.ca/parks.

Mayor Miller will participate in a tree planting at the Sun Valley site in the
Lower Don watershed-one of the six designated Trees Across Toronto sites. Mayor
Miller will be joined by Deputy Mayor Joe Pantalone, Toronto's Tree Advocate;
Councillor Case Ootes; Brenda Librecz, Acting General Manager, Parks and
Recreation; Gregor Beck from the Federation of Ontario Naturalists; and John
Wilson from the Task Force to Bring Back the Don.
