Toronto Hydro 2012 CR Report

INTRODUCTION OUR SERVICES OUR WORKFORCE OUR ENVIRONMENTal Planting New Roots Our annual tree planting event continued at Centennial Park in Etobicoke. We planted 200 trees and shrubs, including white spruce, red maple, bur oak, chokecherry, grey dogwood and pasture rose species. More than 150 employees accompanied by 25 volunteers from LEAF — Local Enhancement and Appreciation of Forests and the City of Toronto spent the day digging, planting and mulching. Since 2004, Toronto Hydro employees have planted 2,755 trees in various parks across the City. Due to the devastation caused by invading species like the emerald ash borer and the asian longhorn beetle, Toronto Hydro has been focused on planting a variety of native species to strengthen our urban canopy’s defences against these types of infestations. We also support Ontario Forestry Association’s (OFA) Annual Tree Bee Competition, a tree identification and conservation contest for Grade 4-6 students. Tree Bee is a great opportunity to get kids excited about trees, forests and nature.
