However, local forestry experts say there’s a lot that still needs to be done to keep the city green.
Researchers at M-I-T recently launched their Treepedia project in collaboration with the World Economic Forum.
Using Google street view, they measured the percentage of land cove4red by trees in a dozen cities around the world.
At 19.5% Toronto ranks 5th … Vancouver took top spot with almost 26%.
The city’s Tree Planting Strategy includes a goal to have 40% of Toronto covered by trees by about 2050.
