As we celebrate Canada's 150th birthday, special projects are being implemented to leave a legacy for future generations. The goal of the Canada 150 Maple Groves project is to plant a grove of 150 native Canadian maple trees in each of the City's 23 wards.
What is a grove?
The Canada 150 Maple Groves may take the form of a formal cluster of trees, linear groupings, or maples planted with a reforestation site or natural area.
What species of trees are planted in the Canada 150 Maple Groves project?
The trees planted in the grove will be native Canadian sugar, red, and silver maples.
What size are the trees?
Primarily, the trees will be potted 25 mm caliper (about 5-7 ft tall) however, smaller stock may be used if more appropriate to the site.
