​​​​​Toronto Community Housing residents, staff and volunteers from the Chester Le community joined TD Friends​ of the Environment Foundation to plant more than 60 large trees and shrubs. Their efforts restored nearly half the community’s tree canopy that was damaged in the 2013 ice storm.

The tree planting took place on October 24 as part of TD Tree Days and TD’s commitment to supporting the Chester Le community.

“We are pleased to be working with residents, community volunteers and TD to help rebuild a greener community in Chester Le. Through partnerships like this we can work together to make positive impacts in Toronto Community Housing neighbourhoods across the city,” said Steve Jacques, Director, Revitalization and Renewal Communities, Toronto Community Housing.

Toronto Community Housing plans to continue working with TD Friends of the Environment Foundation on further events in Chester Le and other communities in 2016.​
