Ecology Ottawa, in partnership with the Queensway Terrace North Community Association, will be co-hosting a tree giveaway event in our neighborhood.
Come to Frank Ryan Park on April 30th starting at 9:30 am until 11:00 for a free tree. We hope to see you there whether it’s for a tree, to help with our Spring Cleanup or to limit the impact of the Spongy moth.
If you are interested in helping support any of these activities, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can find more information on Ecology Ottawa’s Tree Giveaway Campaign on their website. As it is early in the season, their calendar is not yet available but rest assured that QTN’s date is confirmed!
Here are some of the benefits you can expect from the planting of trees:
- improvement in air quality
- reduced energy costs due to cooler air
- removal of harmful chemicals and release of oxygen
- sequestering of carbon
- improvement in water quality
- urban beautification and stress relief
- provision of fruits and nuts for urban wildlife and people
- increased property value
Please note that this initiative is not limited to QTN. Feel free to share this information with anyone you think may be interested.
