Grow Indigenous Trees on Empty Lots
In the denser areas of our city where there are lots of building more than 4 stories, we should plant some pocket forests of indigenous conifers such as cedar, douglas fir and hemlock. These trees grow quickly. They would add oxygen, wildlife and calm to congested areas.
This sounds like a far-out idea, but it is totally possible. It is especially possible in the Downtown Eastside. Our inner cities need more trees and fewer highrises to contribute to the health of the residents and the earth.

More trees please so we can try to counter the stupid idea of waste incineration!
