  2010 NeighbourWoods Maple
   
   

The NeighbourWoods Program is a residential planting initiative developed by the City of Kelowna's Park Services department to encourage citizens to help grow healthy neighbourhoods and preserve Kelowna’s urban forest.

Since 2010, residents have purchased more than 2,500 discounted trees to plant on their properties.

NeighbourWoods Program Update
Residents can pre-order their tree starting Monday, April 4 at 8:30 a.m. New this year, residents are required to purchase their tree prior to the pick-up date. Trees are exactly $40/each (GST included).

Helping to grow Kelowna's urban canopy is as easy as one, two, tree:

  • View the descriptions and select the tree of your choice.
  • Order your tree by calling 250-469-8800 to pay by credit card, or visit the friendly staff at Parkinson Recreation Centre to pay by cash, debit or credit card.
  • Pick the tree up at the NeighbourWoods event on Saturday, April 30 at the Mission Recreation Park Arboretum, 4105 Gordon Drive between 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Please ensure you have the appropriate vehicle to pick-up the tree. As this program is only available for Kelowna residents, proof of address is required to pick-up the tree.


Individuals must be able to pick-up their tree at the NeighbourWoods event on April 30; or have someone pick it up on their behalf. Trees that have not been picked up will be donated to the City of Kelowna and planted on city property.

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.
