NEWS — Tree coupons — 750 of them — will be available first-come first-served from the City starting Monday.

The coupons, valued at $20, cans be picked up at City Hall or at the Public Works Centre at 955 Concordia Way, during regular business hours, Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 pm.

There’s a limit of one coupon per household. The coupon can also be used towards the purchase of fruit trees.

The City has other tree planting incentives for residents that include:

Boulevard Tree Planting Program – Allows neighbourhoods to apply for trees to be planted on their street if homeowners agree to be responsible for irrigating them.

Kamloops Community Forest – This is a Communities in Bloom Legacy Project where people can dedicate a memorial or celebratory tree in the area set aside between Riverside Park and Pioneer Park or in other park areas.
