NeighbourWoods has Kelowna looking greener

The City of Kelowna has 350 trees ready for residents to pick-up at Saturday’s NeighbourWoods event taking place at the Mission Recreation Park Arboretum.

The arboretum is located at 4105 Gordon Dr. Enter off the intersection of Gordon and Lequime.

The NeighbourWoods program is an important residential planting initiative for the city as it makes “greening” neighbourhoods affordable for residents. The program encourages citizens and communities to grow and preserve our urban forest.

Even residents who were not able to purchase a tree this year are encouraged to attend Saturday’s event where tree planting demonstrations will take place every hour of the event.

City staff will also be on hand to answer questions about gardening as well as tree health and maintenance.

The event will run from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Since 2010, residents have purchased more than 1,800 discounted trees to plant on their properties.
