Residents are invited to attend an evening devoted to learning more about urban trees and discussing the importance and challenges of urban forest management. By attending, you'll experience an expo of tree and environmental organizations including Ecology Ottawa, Tree Canada, and others. Philip van Wassenaer, arborist and urban forestry consultant,
