The City of Kelowna has 350 trees ready for residents to pick-up at Saturday’s NeighbourWoods event.
Deputy Mayor Robert Hobson will be participating in the event by planting a tree in the Arboretum.
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 runs from 9:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. at the Mission Recreation Park Arboretum on Gordon Drive.
Since 2010, residents have purchased more than 1,800 discounted trees to plant on their properties.
