The NeighbourWoods Program is a residential planting initiative developed by the City of Kelowna's Park Services department, funded through a matching grant program, to encourage citizens to help grow healthy neighbourhoods and preserve Kelowna’s urban forest.
In 2013, 400 trees were purchased by Kelowna citizens to help grow Kelowna's tree canopy.
NeighbourWoods Program Update 2014
The NeighbourWoods Program is scheduled for April 26, 2014.
A description of the available trees and the online application will be available mid-March.

Benefits of Trees
Trees improve air quality by removing atmospheric carbon dioxide, absorbing pollutants and producing oxygen. The average Canadian urban tree is estimated to remove approximately 200 kg of carbon from the environment over an 80 year lifespan.
