KELOWNA - Someone will help the City of Kelowna’s Park Services department spruce up Rutland’s Roxby Square over the winter holidays by donating an evergreen tree.
“We’re looking for a healthy 30- to 35-foot fir or spruce tree. A City crew will come to the location, safely remove the tree and transport it to Roxby Square. If someone has a tree that has outgrown its space on their property or simply need a change in landscaping, this is an excellent opportunity to do so, free of charge,” said Blair Stewart, Urban Forestry Supervisor.
The tree will be decorated with holiday lights as part of the Roxby Square Christmas display. Interested tree donors within the city’s boundaries can contact the Park Services office at 250-71-PARKS (717-2757).
Park Services will only contact those with a suitable tree.
Only one tree will be chosen.
Stuart Park will also feature a decorated tree over the holidays.
