Event: ReTree YYC FairThis Sunday, Calgarians are invited to the ReTree YYC Fair at South Glenmore Park to learn more on restoring the city's urban canopy after Snowtember, a snow storm last fall.
The City of Calgary and industry experts will be on hand to give talks, demos and answer any tree questions residents might have about how to care for their trees. There will also be free mulch, activities for kids, entertainment and food options. "Our goal is to help citizens access information about how to care for their storm damaged trees as well as learn about how to choose and plant the appropriate tree for their yard," said Nico Bernard, manager for ReTree YYC. "There are tree times as many damaged trees on private property as there is on City land and recovering from this storm will require us as a city and a community to look after our trees together."
It's estimated 50 per cent of Calgary's trees were damaged during Snowtember, with some requiring corrective pruning while others need to be removed and replanted.
