Abbotsford wins grant to plant 150 trees

By Kelvin Gawley

Abbotsford may soon be looking a little greener, with a promise from the city to place 150 new trees in residential areas.

The city will do the planting with a $25,000 grant from TD Canada, a charity devoted to “greening” urban and rural environments in Canada. They will be planted by city staff along residential streets around the downtown core and along a portion of South Fraser Way.

Residents and business owners will receive an information package informing them of the project. They will be able to fill out a form selecting what kind of tree they would prefer.

Of the 140 applicant communities, Abbotsford was one of 13 grant recipients, winning a total of $300,000. There were two other B.C. winners: Coquitlam and View Royal on Vancouver Island.
