In celebration of National Tree Day, the not-for-profit organization Tree Canada is challenging all Canadians to help plant 20,000 trees across the country. On Wednesday, September 25, the Town of Oakville along with community volunteers, will plant 500 trees at Oakville Park to commemorate the day.
As part of the town’s Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) management program, a section of Oakville Park has been identified as a Prime Site for intensive regeneration. Dead and dying ash trees destroyed by EAB were removed from the park last winter to address public safety concerns. While natural regeneration will account for most of the regrowth in the woodlands, the town has implemented a Woodlands Conservation Program and established Oakville Park as one of a number of concentrated planting sites called Prime Sites to offset the damage caused by EAB.
The town is dedicated to reaching a 40 per cent urban forest canopy. Help Oakville reach our canopy coverage goal! Join the Oakville Park tree planting event. Sign up and register a team or individually at email@example.com by September 16.
The event will take place from 3 to 6 p.m. at the woodlot north of White Oaks Secondary School’s North Campus parking lot at 1065 McCraney Street East.
