We are lucky to have great neighbourhoods populated with trees. As our community continues to mature, tree replacement and maintenance are important.
During the 2014 municipal election campaign, Mayor Jim Watson pledged support for 1 million trees by 2017 (Canada’s 150th birthday). Details are yet to be released, but please visit this page for further information as it becomes available.
Below are some links to assist you. Also, feel free to contact my office if you need any assistance.
As part of Canada's 150th anniversary celebrations, maple trees are being planted across the city.
