Six heritage trees in an urban ‘hood

We will visit six majestic bur oak trees that will be coming into leaf. Learn how Champlain Park ‘hood has managed to get a provincial designation for these heritage trees—to date, the only such designations in Ottawa. Discuss and strategize on ways to ensure heritage trees and all our natural heritage are recognized by the City of Ottawa as it reviews its tree by-law in 2018.

Route
Meet at Champlain Park, 149 Cowley Ave. Ottawa, near the fieldhouse. From there, we will walk south on Cowley to visit the first bur oak. We will walk west on Sunnymede Ave. and visit two bur oak trees on Keyworth Ave. Our next stop will be two bur oak trees on Daniel Ave. The final stop will be at the bur oak located on Clearview Ave at Patricia.

Three of the trees are located in backyards where access to the yard involves driveways with some slope and grassy, uneven terrain in the yards.

About
Debra and Daniel are animators for the Champlain Oaks Project, which was launched in our small enclave within Kitchissippi Ward in 2010. Our neighbourhood project aims to protect and celebrate these massive bur oak trees that have grown in this part of the city for centuries, from acorns planted by squirrels and blue jays!
