Trees in the News


With our news page, we hope to both educate Ontarians on some key issues and to open a dialogue with our membership and the broader public to discover new issues.

Tree Talks will include articles written by the OUFC team and will also feature articles from a broad range of media. We  would also like to encourage our members to contact us about submitting their own urban forest stories!

If you are interested in becoming an OUFC member and/or submitting a story, please see our contact us.
