Urban Forestry Experts

Toronto-based consulting arborist combining education & experience to produce professional Arborist Reports & Tree Protection Plans

Meet Lauren McLaughlin

Arborist & Educator

Hi! Nice to virtually meet you! I'm the resident tree nerd at The Urban Forest Co. I'm here to provide you with consultation services for all things tree-related. 

My passion for trees has developed over decades; spending time outdoors with my family as a kid, swinging from tree to tree as a treetop trekking guide after I graduated university, and studying for my master's degree in Arboriculture and Urban Forestry have all shaped me into the arborist that I am today. 

When I'm not helping my clients you'll find me at Humber college where I am a professor of Arboricultural Science....and...when I'm not working you'll find me training for triathlons; painting; playing my ukulele; and boring my family, friends, and my dog with facts about trees and/or soil.
