Canadian Landscape Standards / Our Downtown: How Are the Trees?


The first of this two part session looks at the new Canadian Landscape Standard (CLS), a single, authoritative resource for landscape construction projects across Canada. For the first time, there is a national guideline to set the standard of landscape work in every province across the country. Designed for use by landscape architects, landscape designers, landscape contractors, grounds maintenance contractors and government parks departments at all levels, the CLS will be an indispensable tool to the success of any landscape project.

The second part (Be a Lorax for CiB) discusses best practices for Urban Trees. Particular focus will address trees that are planted in harsh downtown situations such as sidewalk cut-outs and hardscape boulevards.
