National Tree Day Today
Prince George, B.C. – There are two events planned for today in Prince George to mark National Tree Day.
CN will be celebrating at Duchess Park, where two trees will be dedicated, and an educational plaque unveiled to mark CN’s carbon reduction plan for 2017.
Then, over at City Hall, an announcement about trees to be planted along Ospika Boulevard and the main drive to CN Centre.
Tree Canada, the leading national tree planting charity in Canada, celebrates it’s 25th anniversary today with the planting of a tree in Ottawa, just below Parliament Hill. It will be tree number 82 million for the charity.
“Growing in size every year, National Tree Day helps remind Canadians of the importance of trees , how they beautify our communities, naturally cool our cities in the summer, and combat climate change, and help improve human health,” said Michael Rosen, President of Tree Canada. “As Tree Canada celebrates our 25th year of growing greener, healthier places for Canadians to live, we look forward to 25 more years of playing a leading role in the preservation of Canada’s urban forest across the country.”
