Tree planting coming to the 600 block Haliburton St!

SECA is extending the Haliburton Street Tree Planting Project to the 600 block, Haliburton Street. Alan Kemp, the City’s Urban Forrester, has secured funding from BC Hydro and Trees Canada allowing the purchase of 30 cherry trees. We are planting the trees on Saturday April 10th and hoping that you can help out.

We also need to water the trees over the summer in order to help them get established. Our hope is to identify residents who can commit to caring for one or two nearby trees over the summer months.

When: 9am Saturday April 10th

Where: meeting mid block, West side, by lane access to Haliburton.

Bring: Shovels and work gloves

We are planning a bbq for lunch. Location to be announced.

For more info come to next SECA meeting on April 7th, 7pm at Princess Royal or call Douglas Hardie at 250 754 0677

* The Newcastle Neighbourhood Assocation were the other luck recipients of trees, and held their planting on  march 27.  To see photos, please click here.
