If you are curious to learn more about the history, biology and folklore of some of our community’s celebrated trees, you will be interested to hear that Neighbourwoods has produced an online interactive tool that you can access on your laptop, desktop and mobile phone.
This new hands-on Story Map was inspired by last year’s Tour the Trees event, where cyclist Rick Goodfellow lead local peddlers around the community to learn about notable trees and sites. Now, regardless of whether you are cycling, walking, or simply sitting in your own home, you can experience the tour for yourself, fit with stories, pictures, and video content about each tree.
From mid-July until late August, all the trees on the map will be identified by a laminated sign with a QR code. Those with the QR app on their phone will be one quick scan away from accessing everything you need to know about each tree.
Neighbourwoods is grateful to Greg Wolowich, GIS Planning Coordinator for the Township for his tech support and to the Township for their funding under the Community Impact Grant program.
