Toronto's Favorite Leafy Giants


Exhibit to profile 16 urban trees

They’re tall, slender, beautiful . . . and green.

The Toronto tree portrait exhibit profiles 16 trees chosen by local artists, musicians and politicians, all captured by photographer Vincenzo Pietropaolo.

Each tree-picker — from Adrienne Clarkson to Joe Pantalone — wrote a short memory or anecdote about their chosen green giant. The idea was to get a peek into how others see the city’s trees.

“It was a way to personalize the urban forest. And I think when you personalize something you’re much more likely to care about it and look after it,” said LEAF member Lorraine Johnson.

LEAF, an environmental non-profit organization that works to protect the urban forest, organized the exhibit, which opens Thursday July 22nd at 7 p.m. at Side Space Gallery on St. Clair Ave.
