Big thanks to the City of Winnipeg Urban Forestry Department and Councillor Jason Schreyer for their support of this project!
GeNA has taken an active role not only in securing funding for our own neighbourhood’s trees, but also in advocating for better funding for urban forestry at the city level.
Members of the Tree Committee spoke as a delegation during last month’s municipal budget deliberations.
