Beautification morphs to air quality improvement as Tree Project takes root in Leslieville and Riverdale; Toronto, Canada

InsideToronto Article: Tree Project takes root in Leslieville and Riverdale:
Two east end groups have come together to improve Leslieville's tree canopy and in turn enhance local air quality.
About two years ago, several south Riverdale/Leslieville residents concerned about the aging and degenerating tree canopy in their area came together to form Beautification of Leslieville District (BOLD), which was instrumental in the planting of more than 60 trees in Greenwood Park.
This fall, that group started working on a new project called the Leslieville/Riverdale Tree Project in partnership with the South Riverdale Community Health Centre's (SRCHC) Neighbourhood Action on Air Quality (NAAQ), an outdoor air quality initiative funded by the Toronto Atmospheric Fund.
