Tree Planting on Vancouver Avenue

On Saturday, March 20, 2010, numerous residents and members of the Newcastle Neighbourhood Association participated in the planting of 19 maple, cherry, and oak trees along Vancouver Avenue between Townsite Road and Terminal Avenue, Nanaimo. With the 19 trees and the greening of the median between sidewalk and pavement, Vancouver is becoming the grand avenue it was meant to be. Congratulations to BC Hydro and Tree Canada for providing the trees and to the City of Nanaimo and the Newcastle Neighbourhood Association for coordinating and supporting this Green Initiative!
