KAMLOOPS – As of Tuesday, April 7, the City of Kamloops will have tree coupons valued at $20 available to the public. Residents who would like a tree coupon can pick one up at City Hall at 7 Victoria Street West, or the Public Works Centre at 955 Concordia Way, during regular business hours, Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4 p.m.
There are 500 coupons available and they are on a first come, first served basis, at a limit of one coupon per household. The coupon can also be used towards the purchase of fruit trees.
The City has other tree planting incentives for residents which include:
Boulevard Tree Planting Program – This program allows neighbourhoods to apply for trees to be planted on their street if homeowners agree to be responsible for irrigating them.
Kamloops Community Forest – This is a Communities in Bloom Legacy Project where people can dedicate a memorial or celebratory tree in the area set aside between Riverside Park and Pioneer Park or in other park areas.
For more information or to apply to participate in any of these programs, please visit www.kamloops.ca/trees.
