"Like heritage buildings, trees are landmarks that have the potential to survive through multiple generations. Trees are unique in that they provide ecological, social, and economic benefits beyond heritage value that increase exponentially as they grow. The purpose of this paper is to contribute to the understanding of Cobourg’s natural and cultural heritage and create a record that will act as a catalyst for future promotion and appreciation of trees and the urban forest in Cobourg."
