Tree Planting on Lee Boulevard Median

Through the land dedication fund, I’m providing the Forestry branch a total of $9,000 to plant approximately 12 trees on the median between Lee Blvd and the service road in the Fairfield Park neighbourhood.

There are trees already in the median, but it an accommodate more. An area resident called and though this would be a great place for more trees. I agreed, and after some underground checking by the forestry department, it was determined additional tree planting was possible.

Exact locations and numbers will be determined once underground clearances have been obtained. This planting will be performed by the City of Winnipeg Urban Forestry Branch as these are larger trees. The cost includes purchase and delivery of caliper nursery stock, planting, watering and associated maintenance for establishment of the trees for two years. I expect this planting to occur this spring.
