City Seeking Input from Citizens on the Urban Forest


September 15, 2011 – The City of Thunder Bay is looking for citizens’ views, comments and suggestions on key questions and to help develop a strategic management plan that will set the direction of Thunder Bay’s urban forest.

The public meeting will take place on Tuesday, September 20, from 7 – 9 pm at the Thunder Bay 55 Plus Centre gymnasium on 700 River Street.

Topics to be discussed include:

  • The benefits of trees to society – what’s a tree worth?
  • The value of Thunder Bay’s urban forest to the community
  • How important is Thunder Bay’s urban forest to you?
  • Citizen input regarding the City’s urban forestry program – what works well / what needs improvement

The session will be educational and informative, with the goal of understanding community values and priorities.

Hosted by Davey Resource Group, tree care consultants, and in partnership with the City of Thunder Bay, all residents are invited to attend.

The City of Thunder Bay is committed to enhancing the environment by building a healthy, beautiful and sustainable place to live, work and recreate. Managing the City’s urban forest is a challenging and complex task, requiring strategic investment which provides long term benefits.
