Residential property owners are again helping grow the City’s tree canopy this spring through a program called Grow Our Canopy. Now in its second year, the program is aimed at helping residents purchase trees for their yards.

Trees for Nipissing has teamed up with the City of North Bay to make 100 trees available at a low cost of $15 each to qualified residential property owners who successfully complete an online application form and pay for their tree in advance.

“Trees for Nipissing is so excited to be providing this program for North Bay homeowners. It is a good start to increasing the tree canopy for future generations this year and many more to come!” said Trees for Nipissing Chair Peggy Walsh Craig. “Thanks to North Bay City Council and City Staff, who are helping make North Bay a greener and healthier place to live and work.”

A variety of trees is available, including taller species such as oak and sugar maple and smaller tress such as pagoda dogwood and serviceberry. Trees will range from three to five feet tall and will be less developed than those typically seen in garden centres. Property owners can apply starting April 5 by completing this online form. One tree is available per property. Pick up will be at Lee Park, 800 Memorial Drive, under the Gateway to the North arch in early May.
