Looking to help keep Vancouver green and have some fun in the process?
In time for Arbor Day, the TreeKeepers organization is offering up juvenile trees for Vancouver residents at the low cost of $10 each.
Working towards the Greenest City 2020 initiative with TreeCity, the Environmental Youth Alliance, the Vancouver Parks Board, Environment Canada, and the Vancouver Foundation, TreeKeepers is offering up 18 types of trees.
With maple, ash, spruce, and pine available—as well as fruit-bearing apple, plum, and fig trees—there’s a tree suitable for almost every urban outdoor space.
The easy-to-plant trees (generally three to five feet tall) can be ordered from the TreeKeeper website using PayPal, with distribution through area community centres during March (fruit trees) and April-May (all others).
Supplies are limited and trees do sell out, so order early to avoid disappointment.
