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 neighbourhoodsand preserve Kelowna’s urban forest.
A fall NeighbourWoods events will not be taking place in 2013.
The City would like to thank Air Wick and their Freshest Smelling Location contest for their support during the spring 2013 program. Through this event, 400 trees were purchased by Kelowna citizens to 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 from the environment over an 80 year lifespan.
