Volunteers were out in force on Saturday morning putting right a trail of damage caused by vandals along Lerwick Road.
Members of Courtenay Rotary Club dug up and replaced 32 trees that were broken over the September long weekend.
The volunteer effort was a display of civic pride the City of Courtenay hopes will send a message to the culprits.
'We're really grateful to Courtenay Rotary for doing this,' said Courtenay Mayor Greg Phelps.
'It's not just about the labour. It's symbolic to have community volunteers coming together to replant these trees. It shows that we as a community won't stand for this type of behavior.'
