Laurelwood residents are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to plant a free maple tree on their property.  Laurelwood is located in Ward 2 and our elected representative is Councillor Brian Bourke.

(Waterloo, Ont. – March 01, 2017) In recognition of Canada’s 150th anniversary this year, council approved funding in the amount of $25,000 for a community tree planting program. A total of 2,017 trees, approximately three feet in height, will be available to residents on a first-come, first served basis as follows:
Each ward will receive 150 trees to be distributed through the ward councillor. 517 trees will be handed out at the city’s service centre open house taking place on Saturday, June 10, 2017.150 trees will be handed out at the city’s Earth Day event on Saturday, May 6, 2017.300 trees will be handed out at various city functions and events.
While this initiative celebrates Canada’s 150th anniversary, it also provides an opportunity to increase our community’s tree canopy. A detailed distribution plan, including dates, times and locations for the give-away, will be shared with the public later this spring.
