Woodlands Protection Installed.
The trees in the afforestation area are being cared for! A simply fantastic development has occurred ~ the City of Saskatoon urban forest located between the Civic Operations Center (Bus Barns Construction site) and the South West off leash recreation area has motorized vehicle restrictions installed in the form of Jersey Barriers and locked gates.
What an amazing way to preserve and conserve the natural wildlife habitat corridor. What a wonderful way to inspire ethics and encourage others to tread lightly in the underbrush encourage the growth and development of the Colorado Blue Spruce saplings. This development encourages visitors to the afforestation area to be respectful of the treasure of this urban forest nestled in the City of Saskatoon. It is with pride that visitors can come to the City of Saskatoon afforestation area to behold the wonders of birds and the natural world.
Entering a protected afforestation area, the healthy biodiversity, hundreds of different and separate grasses and wildflower amid the shrubs and trees comprise the ecosystem. An ecosystem like no other in this Aspen Parkland of Saskatchewan. Within the city of Saskatoon, a wondrous delight to behold a mixed forest of Trembling Aspen Populus tremuloides, American Elm Ulmus americana, Colorado Blue Spruce Picea pungens, Scotch Pine Pinus sylvestris L, Willow Salix, Black Balsam Poplar Populus balsamifera, Snowberry Symphoricarpos albus, Honeysuckle Lonicera, Canada Buffaloberry Shepherdia canadensis growing in harmony and thriving. In Saskatchewan, native evergreens require a much higher elevation, so in the majority of open spaces and eco-zones in the Aspen Parkland, there are not the evergreens. The Great Blue Heron (Ardea herodias) absolutely needs the woodlands to nest and roost set beside the wetlands for foraging. The evergreen pine needles are used to line the nests, which can start out 20 inches (50.8 cm) in diameter in the woodlands.
Depending upon the environmental condition, the flora and fauna varies in their display. It suffices to say the afforestation area west of the Civic Operations Center, east of the South West off leash recreation area with such vehicle barriers, and path use to mitigate the human eco-footprint will encourage this afforestation area to be a healthy and thriving eco-system.

“Their life is mysterious, it is like a forest; from far off it seems a unity, it can be comprehended, described, but closer it begins to separate, to break into light and shadow, the density blinds one. Within there is no form, only prodigious detail that reaches everywhere: exotic sounds, spills of sunlight, foliage, fallen trees, small beasts that flee at the sound of a twig-snap, insects, silence, flowers.
And all of this, dependent, closely woven, all of it is deceiving. There are really two kinds of life. There is, as Viri says, the one people believe you are living, and there is the other. It is this other which causes the trouble, this other we long to see.”

“A forest ecology is a delicate one. If the forest perishes, its fauna may go with it. The Athshean word for world is also the word for forest.”

“Planting a tree is the easiest way to align yourself with the cosmic rhythm.”
