KELOWNA - Time is running out for Kelowna residents interested in ordering a $40 NeighbourWoods tree as there is less than 100 trees left of the Regal Prince Oak and Snowbird Hawthorn variety.
Applications are still being accepted on the City of Kelowna’s website at kelowna.ca/parks under Neighbourwoods, and will be accepted until all trees are sold.
The NeighbourWoods trees will be ready for pick-up on Saturday, April 25.
Date: Saturday, April 25
Time: 9:30 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Location: Mission Recreation Park Arboretum, 4105 Gordon Drive (enter off Gordon and Lequime)
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 program is restricted to Kelowna residents and has a limit of one tree per household. NeighbourWoods is part of the City’s strategy to grow Kelowna’s urban canopy. Since 2010, residents have purchased more than 2,100 discounted trees to plant on their properties.
