Tree Planting Party
Time & Location
About the Event
Roots for trees is a initiative in Edmonton that is possible with the help of local businesses, communities and volunteers like you! The goal is to plant an additional 45,000 trees per year 🌲🙂
Trees plays a critical role in the landscape management process of naturalization. Over time, these grassy areas are planted with trees, shrubs and wildflowers and are brought back to a more natural state, resulting in economic, environmental and quality of life benefits.
Trees help to:
•Expand our urban forest
•Protect local habitat and biodiversity
•Help to reduce greenhouse gasses and fight climate change by reducing carbon
•Improve the quality of the natural environment and reduce weed competition
•improve water quality in ponds, streams and rivers.
