What is Neighbourwoods?

Neighbourwoods© was developed by Dr. W.A. Kenney and Dr. D. Puric-Mladenovic from the University of Toronto, and has been utilized in communities all over Ontario and wider. We are so excited to add Long Branch to the list.   We started in the summer of 2018 with 2 Summer Students and expanded to 5 full time summer student positions in 2019. 

Neighbourwoods© is a tree inventory and monitoring system that fosters community involvement and education through active participation in citizen science!

The data collected will be used to inform decision making process and determine tree: species composition, size and condition. Knowing what you have, makes planning for a sustainable future that much easier!
