Supporting legacy trees in your community
Our mission is to lower our collective carbon footprint by restoring and nurturing the older trees within the community. We recognize the value in keeping these trees healthy for their beauty and for the comfort and well-being of us all.
While we don’t have many legacy trees on the Island, we are focusing our efforts on stewarding middle-aged trees that need the necessary care so that they may one day become senior, storied pillars of our community.

Happiest outside, among trees and preferably near water, embodiment coach Allyson Woodrooffe is fortunate to have lived on Toronto Island since 1989. Her appreciation of trees came through her grandfather, who loved sharing walks among the pine forest on his farm.
Kathleen Doody has been part of the Toronto Island community since 1976. The landscape and surroundings have been as important for her as the community, and she has been actively involved over the years in projects concerning both environmental and visual improvements.
