Trees starting at $25 for Montreal Island residents
Un arbre pour mon quartier returns this week until September 24th. The Regroupement des éco-quartiers (REQ) and the Société de verdissement du Montréal métropolitain (Soverdi), in collaboration with the Ville de Montréal, Pincourt, Côte-Saint-Luc and Kirkland, are inviting Montreal Island residents to take concrete action in the fight against heat islands by planting a tree on their property.
It’s quick and easy to get involved: homeowners and tenants alike can simply shop for their trees, starting at $25 for regular trees and $35 for fruit trees, on unarbrepourmonquartier.org, and will receive them in mid-October.
Over the past 10 years, thanks to this collective effort, 25,000 trees have already been planted, the equivalent of 3 times the surface area of Lafontaine Park. That’s over 3 tonnes of pollution and 400 tonnes of carbon absorbed in a single year thanks to the efforts of Montrealers… not to mention all the other benefits for the health and well-being of the population!
