The number of trees in our urban forest in Kamloops is below average when compared with other cities. The recent devastation wreaked by the pine beetle has further decimated our urban forest.
We need to plant more trees, our goal is to plant 20,000 trees over the next four years.
We want to achieve the many quality-of-life benefits that come with planting trees. No matter how you participate, you will be planting a legacy when you plant a tree - an extraordinary gift to Kamloops for generations to come.
Here's what you can do
1. Participate in one of our Tree Planting Programs
2. Make a Record of your Tree Planting
Trees help clean our air, and reduce the pollutants that trigger asthma attacks and exacerbate other respiratory diseases. They cool our streets, sidewalks, and homes on hot summer days. Trees increase property value, and encourage neighborhood revitalization. And trees make our City an even more beautiful and comfortable place to live, work, and visit.
