The Benefits of Trees

The Conservatory’s Learn it at Lunch Series is going virtual for fall, focusing on how private and community gardening can have a lasting impact on your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. No gardening experience is required.

The presentation will discuss the benefits of Hamilton's urban forest, which is a valuable resource that provides economic, environmental and social benefits. Quality of life in cities is enhanced when we have a canopy of trees shading our homes and streets, mitigating stormwater effects, providing energy savings and improving property values. Research by the USDA Forest Service indicates that for every $1 spent on urban trees, $2.70 in benefits is returned.  Presenter: Dave Bienemann, municipal arborist, City of Hamilton. 

The Series is free and open to the public. Register at to receive a streaming link for that week’s program. For more information, contact Chelsea Obrebski at
