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 and communities to grow and preserve Kelowna’s urban forest.
NeighbourWoods will be held on April 20 at:
Mission Recreation Park Arboretum
4105 Gordon Dr.
Arboretum Map (*Enter off Lequime Rd. not Lexington Rd.)
Registration is now closed.
Thanks to Air Wick and their Freshest Smelling Location contest, we are able to bring you the 2013 program.
Plant a Legacy
In 2011, Kelowna residents bought 400 trees at a discount ($30/tree, including taxes) to plant on their properties.
By planting a legacy, participants help grow Kelowna's tree canopy, ensuring that current and future generations will enjoy the many benefits of trees.

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 over an 80 year lifespan. View the fact sheet PDF for more information on the Benefits of trees and planting tips.
