More NeighbourWoods trees available - Kelowna News - Castanet.net:
Due to the overwhelming success of this year’s spring NeighbourWoods program, the City of Kelowna is excited to offer a second, fall program.
“By providing resilient trees at a discount we are encouraging residents to help us increase the city’s urban tree canopy,” says Parks Services Manager Ian Wilson.
“Studies show that increasing our tree cover to 25 per cent will produce pretty significant energy savings and other great benefits. The research also points out that we don’t have much species diversity and that our canopy is only about 13 per cent.”
