TORONTO, April 16 /CNW/ -

    What:   Seventh annual tree planting - approximately 350 native trees and
            shrubs will be planted in Pine Point Park bringing the total to
            over 2,600!

            In addition to new plantings, the team will be taking part in the
            maintenance of last year's planting and cleaning the surrounding
            area of garbage and debris in support of Mayor Miller's 20-minute

    Why:    Toronto Hydro believes that trees are a vital tool in helping to
            battle climate change. Over the past few years, Toronto Hydro and
            its neighbours have been supporting the vision of a revitalized
            Taylor Massey Creek near its Underwriters work location. With a
            work site in the west end, the company added Pine Point Park to
            the planting activities.

    Who:    More than 200 employees, friends and family of Toronto Hydro
            Corporation, City of Toronto and LEAF (Local Enhancement &
            Appreciation of Forests).
