Over 80 people participated in the Winter Tree Tour in our park this past Saturday.  The weather, which had been utterly bonechilling in the days leading up to the tour, relaxed and it was a balmy minus 2C.

The event, co-sponsored with our friends at LEAF, was led by arborist (and park neighbor) Mark Sherman who regularly works with LEAF leading their very popular tree tours. (Check them out -- they happen all over the city.)

 

 

The weather is supposed to be warming up on Saturday again with possible light snow for pretty visual effect.

When:    Saturday, March 1st, 2014, 1pm to 3pm
Where:   Meet inside the Rec Centre on Crawford, back entrance area
What:      Tree Tour of the Trinity Bellwoods Park by LEAF (w FoTBP)
Cost:      Suggested donation of $5

 

It  was a perfect climate and conditions for bulb planting.  That rain last nite softened the ground, thank you!  Thank you to the community members that came out to help welcome spring in with this fall planting.  Can't wait to see our results.  Here's a few images.

The above may look like we are praying to the young trees health, but in fact we thought that some spring flowers around the memorial trees would be nice.

Wonderful helping hands - adults and kids, so cute!

Ever found yourself staring at one of Trinity Bellwoods Park's beautiful trees and wondering just what kind of tree it is?

If so here's great news -- check the tabs labeled "Tree Tours" under GREENSPACE above and try one of the self-guided tree tours there.  Between them they have bundles of information about the trees and how to identify them and where to find them in the park.

We've just posted a downloadable pdf map of one done by Canadian Tree Tours in cooperation with Friends of Trinity Bellwoods Park which also boasts a fantastic on-line database of information and photos.
