Being a Good Neighbour to our Trees in the Age of Climate Change – thinkenergy Podcast Episode 107


Trees play an important role in carbon sequestration, slowing the rise of greenhouse gas emissions as they grow.

In thinkenergy episode 107, Hydro Ottawa’s Nick Levac, Supervisor of Distribution Operations, and Greg Tipman, Forestry Inspector, discuss how to minimize power outages while preserving a healthy urban forest.
