On November 3, students from Alexander Muir Gladstone Public School visited Roncesvalles Avenue to learn about the street’s Heritage Tree. The tree received Heritage Designation in 2012 because it is Toronto’s oldest, surviving tree in a commercial district. It was safeguarded during the reconstruction of Roncesvalles Avenue, with impervious and root protecting, rubber pavers.

Chris Winters & Karyn Klaire Koski from Green14 worked alongside Toni Ellis and Jess Kaknevicius from Forests Ontario to teach the children about the importance of trees in society.
