Protecting Trees in Ottawa
Trees are vulnerable to a multitude of stressors such as drought, insects and disease. Tree Ottawa’s Adopt-a-Tree Program significantly improves a tree’s chance of survival thanks to residents like you who commit to basic tree care. By adopting a tree in your neighborhood, you can make sure it receives adequate after planting care, and help create a thriving and healthy urban tree canopy in our city for future generations to come.
Ecology Ottawa has identified a few different ways that you can help protect trees:
- Adopt a tree
- Add your tree on the Great Ecology Ottawa Tree Map
- Learn about the current threats to our Trees
- Learn how to properly care for trees
- Drop off or adopt unwanted trees
