INTRODUCTION OUR SERVICES OUR WORKFORCE OUR ENVIRONMENTal INITIATIVES OUR COMMUNITY OUTREACH OUR ECONOMIC PERFORMANCE OUR GOVERNANCE, COMPLIANCE AND BUSINESS CONDUCT Biodiversity — Protecting Toronto’s Urban Forest and Service Reliability We do our best to preserve the City’s urban forest while protecting service reliability for our customers. We have implemented a cycle pruning program and trees are typically trimmed once every three years. Our forestry representatives collaborate with our designers and construction crews to develop projects that minimize our impact to neighbourhood trees. While installing new underground infrastructure, we protect roots from damage through vacuum excavation, root pruning and deep root fertilization, and direction boring. In 2012, we pruned approximately 43,000 trees. Did you know? TORONTO HYDRO 2012 corporate respnosibility report 75
