To increase the resiliency of the forest canopy to current and future threats, Niagara Parks Commission (NPC) has and continues to implement its Urban Forestry Management Strategy. The goals of this strategy are to increase forest canopy to 35%, mitigate threats, and increase biodiversity using the 5-10-20 rule for plant selection. At minimum, NPC is planting 5000 trees annually in addition to replacing any removed hazard trees at a minimum 3:1 ratio.
