Planting Little Forests Kingston

In our yards, our parks and along our streets we plant lines of lonely trees. But a tree is not a forest. Lonely trees are severed from their ecological communities—at the mercy of wind, weather and disease. Rewilding with Little Forests re-enchants our yards and our city with biodiversity... what Robert MacFarlane calls “the wondrous, teeming, calamitously threatened variety & variability of life on Earth, sometimes measured by species richness.”
