Between storms, insects, and disease, Winnipeg’s tree canopy hasn’t had it easy in the past few years. Luckily, Trees Winnipeg has partnered with the City of Winnipeg to help go beyond the city’s existing tree planting program.
This morning, Kamila Konieczy spoke to CTV Morning’s Michael Hutchinson about the Million Tree Challenge, an initiative to plant a million new trees in Winnipeg as our city’s population grows toward one million residents over the next 20 years.
In addition to helping Trees Canada develop videos and content for The Million Tree Challenge, our team has also taken up the cause and is excited to contribute to improved air quality and greener recreation areas for the city as a whole, as well as reduced heating and cooling costs, increased property values, improved health and better quality of life for those planting in their own backyards.
