Did you know?

The trees that grow in the city make up an urban forest. This semi-natural ecosystem brings life to the city, because it is the principal area where animals interact. Many cities have decided to encourage ground cover in certain areas and along bicycle paths. When we view an urban forest as an ecosystem, we are better able to understand its many ecological functions. It improves the quality of the air, helps to regulate the climate, reduces the impact of wind, reduces erosion, regulates drainage, and provides many species with both food and shelter.
