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 2014, 350 trees were purchased by Kelowna citizens to help grow Kelowna's tree canopy.

Please check this page regularly for updates.
Important note: Only City of Kelowna residents are eligible. Supply is limited. Restricted to one tree per household. Requesting a certain tree type does not guarantee that the applicant will get the tree of their choice. Supply is limited and is on a first come, first serve basis. Trees are exactly $40/each (GST included). There will be no rainchecks. If you are unable to pick up your tree, you forfeit your application.
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.
