The Canadian Forest Service’s new My Tree mobile application is a unique tool for exploring the urban forest. The app allows users to identify their climate hardiness zones, apply search filters and discover the native trees of Canada that could thrive on their property and in their neighbourhood.
With the majority of Canadians now living in urban areas, they may not be as familiar with forests as their rural counterparts. However, they still enjoy the benefits that trees bring to their cities, towns and backyards.
Natural Resource Canada’s Canadian Forest Service launched My Tree as part of the celebrations for National Forest Week. The free application is available at the Government of Canada’s Mobile Centre and through app stores for BlackBerry®, Apple® and Android™ platforms.
