Urban Forest Associates Inc. (UFORA) is a Toronto-based urban forestry firm that helps individual homeowners, municipalities, professionals and community organizations improve the urban forests and natural habitats of southern Ontario.
UFORA has worked on hundreds of project sites throughout the Greater Toronto Area since 1990.
We operate in public parks and on private properties, and our work covers all scales – from one tree in your yard to many acres of forest in a city ravine or country estate. Our projects are based on careful analysis of client needs and developed with their best interest and wishes in mind.We develop site-specific plans that meet the aspirations and budgets of our clients, and we provide ongoing maintenance work with our staff afterward.
We undertake the following work using our own staff and crews on every job:
> Cut and prune trees, terrace slopes for erosion and build trails
> Plant trees, shrubs and herbs
> Remove invasive plant species of all kinds
> Write arborist reports, permit applications, natural heritage impact studies and environmental impact reports
> Supervise construction to ensure proper tree protection is implemented
> Participate as expert witnesses at the Ontario Municipal Board
> Devise comprehensive plans for tree protection and ravine stewardship
