Mapping Ottawa’s Lost Trees: Interactive Map

18 06 2018
Mapping Ottawa’s Lost Trees
Intensification in Westboro and throughout the urban core is destroying our front and back yard trees and dramatically reducing space for new trees. Wind and ice storms have also taken their toll. 

Concerned residents can now record lost trees on a new interactive map, an initiative of BigTrees of Kitchissippi, Community Associations for Environmental Sustainability (CAFES), The Greenspace Alliance and Ecology Ottawa.

The map allows you to:

  • plot trees lost due to human or natural causes

  • record details such as tree type (species), approximate date of loss and size

  • add a photograph and comments

  • view the cumulative count of loss, by cause and by City ward

 
The data will be integrated with other mapping initiatives down the road.
