Matthew Harris has written a great article over at blogTO, “Will Silva Cells Help Improve Toronto’s Urban Forest?“
His piece gives a good overview of the many projects we have happening in Toronto at the moment — Bloor Street, the Queensway, Sugar Beach, Mill Street, West Don Lands, and more, phew — all in various stages of completion.

With the City’s recent commitment to expand their urban canopy from 17% to 30%, tools like the Silva Cell system have become increasingly important to make that goal a reality.

We are all super excited to be a part of Toronto’s embrace of green infrastructure like trees and soil. The early results are extremely positive, and we’re looking forward to watching them unfold.
