In addition to risk management work, over 350 trees were planted in 2018 with 100 of these trees being in open parks spaces while others are on trail edges & understory plantings. Some trees were planted in partnership with the Rotary Club. A grant from Tree Canada and BC Hydro helped make the work possible.
