Mennonite Heritage Museum gets new trees as part of greening project

Anonymous funders allow City of Abbotsford to plant 50 trees throughout community

The Mennonite Heritage Museum has some fresh trees on the property, thanks to a greening project in the City of Abbotsford.

The project was made possible by anonymous funders, who have paid the municipality to plant 50 trees around the community.

Out of those 50, six were planted at the museum: three in the front and three in the back.

“The tree variety, Acer Autumn Blaze Maple, or Freeman Maple, was selected by museum director Richard Thiessen for their dramatic autumn colour, which will complement the esthetic of a new exhibit in the fall months of the year,” reads a press release from the museum.
