The deadline is just days away for neighbours to submit requests for trees in the NeighbourWoods pilot program.
In an effort to get as many trees as possible distributed throughout Kelowna, the number of neighbours required to sign up for the program has dropped to 20. The NeighbourWoods program was designed by the City’s Parks Services branch to increase the city’s urban tree canopy and will be kicked off in celebration of International Day of Climate Action, October 24.
The program was announced September 23, with a deadline of October 10 to submit applications. Originally, the requirement was for a minimum of 40 properties to sign on for a chance to be selected to receive trees, one per household, at a significantly reduced rate of $30 per tree (valued at $100).
