Over 90 new trees have been planted in Moir Park in Cranbrook this spring, thanks to BC Hydro and the City of Cranbrook.
BC Hydro contributed $5,000 from their ReGreening Program to help with the purchase of the trees. The City of Cranbrook provided $15,000 toward the initiative including staff time and equipment to plant and maintain the trees. This is the fifth beautification project in which BC Hydro has partnered with the City of Cranbrook.
Over the past 20 years BC Hydro has provided financial support for community tree planting in Cranbrook and communities throughout the East Kootenay.
BC Hydro and Tree Canada Foundation administer the Regreening Program and work directly with municipalities and communities around the province to support tree planting in urban areas.
