What is a RSS Feed? How to view RSS?
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a family of Web feed formats used to publish frequently updated content such as blog entries, news headlines or podcasts. An RSS document, which is called a "feed," "web feed," or "channel," contains either a summary of content from an associated web site or the full text. RSS makes it possible for people to keep up with their favorite web sites in an automated manner that's easier than checking them manually.

RSS content can be read using software called an "RSS reader," "feed reader" or an "aggregator." The user subscribes to a feed by entering the feed's link into the reader or by clicking an RSS icon in a browser that initiates the subscription process. The reader checks the user's subscribed feeds regularly for new content, downloading any updates that it finds.

The initials "RSS" are used to refer to the following formats:

* Really Simple Syndication (RSS 2.0)
* RDF Site Summary (RSS 1.0 and RSS 0.90)
* Rich Site Summary (RSS 0.91)

RSS formats are specified using XML, a generic specification for the creation of data formats.

Heritage Tree Awards View Full Story Minimize
Posted: January 22, 2016 |

Nominate trees from your community and even your own backyard. Visit our Heritage Tree website at: http://www.thinktrees.org/Heritage_Trees.aspx for information on categories.

Remember to sign up, for free, to enter your nomination.
Our province is blessed with an abundance of trees, but did you know trees also make up an important part of Manitoba’s natural heritage? Whether natural or planted, there are a great many trees in the province that may be considered exceptional. There might even be one in your own community! Maybe it is unusually large or tall; perhaps it was planted by early settlers or pioneers; or possibly it has a distinctive shape or even an entirely different form than normal.

If you are unaware of any special trees in your neighbourhood, next time you take a walk pay particular attention. By becoming aware of and interested in trees, you will not only enhance your appreciation of their beauty, you may spot one that could become a heritage tree. Heritage trees can be found anywhere—within natural forests, in urban parks or yards, around farmsteads or even in prairie ravines.

Think you know of an exceptional tree? The Manitoba Forestry Association (MFA) would like to hear from you. Simply fill out the nomination form and send it to us. By gathering information about these impressive trees, the MFA hopes to encourage their preservation so that they may be enjoyed by future generations.

The process to nominate a heritage tree is simple… but the benefits are lasting.
