Can trees and development co-exist? How can we accommodate new living space alongside a
mature tree canopy? What voice can residents have in decisions regarding development and tree preservation? This tour offers an opportunity to discuss these complex questions while exploring the magnificent trees of the Kingsway neighbourhood. 

Two years ago Kingsway Tree Preservation was formed by residents concerned about the loss of majestic oak trees in their neighbourhood. This tour will be co-led by Philip van Wassenaer, a consulting arborist with expertise in heritage tree preservation.
