Volunteers Needed for the #SaveOurCanopy Municipal Election Campaign
Trees Please Winnipeg is looking for volunteers from across the city to talk to candidates in their wards about the Trees Please Pledge. We’ll be holding a Zoom meeting to discuss strategy on Wednesday May 25th and hope that all of you can come.
Our aim is to get candidates in the 2022 municipal election to commit to the following actions that are urgently needed to protect and grow the urban canopy:
1. Plant: For every 1 public tree lost, the city should be replanting at least 2 new public trees, and watering those trees adequately so they survive & thrive.
2. Maintain: Fund a 7-year pruning cycle (the industry standard).
3. Protect: Require that tree protection best practices be incorporated into all construction projects to prevent damage and loss of trees.
Will you help us encourage candidates to take the Trees Please Pledge? Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org! Zoom meeting invite will be send to participants the week of the meeting.
