The A Tree for my Neighbourhood campaign is an initiative of the Regroupement des éco-quartiers (REQ) and the Société de verdissement du Montréal métropolitain (Soverdi) that invites Montréal residents to enjoy the many benefits planting a tree on their property.
You may order your tree online or in person at your local eco-quartier.
A Tree for my Neighbourhood is part of a island-wide effort to increase the tree canopy coverage on the Island of Montréal. The initiative is part of the Action Plan for the Urban Forest. Since its inception in 2013, more than 7 260 trees have been planted through this program.
The City of Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue is proud to be associated with this initiative and encourages its citizens to buy trees at low prices to plant them on their land.
For more information on the program or to place an order, visit the official website: www.unarbrepourmonquartier.org
The autumn sale will be going on from August 23rd to September 27th 2018. However, 5 types of trees are already available for pre-order.
AVAILABLE TREE TYPES
- Regular trees (50$ +taxes)
- Fruit trees (60$ +taxes)
All fruit trees offered as part of the "A Tree for My Neighborhood" campaign are 4 years old. Therefore, several of them will soon be able to bear fruits (within 1 to 2 years, depending on the species and variety). Fruit trees are normally about 170 to 200 cm high and the diameter of their trunk is of approximately 30 mm, depending on the variety chosen.
Non fruit bearing trees are normally about 2 years old. These are between 150 and 200 cm* high and their trunk measures between 20 and 30 mm* in diameter, once again depending on the species chosen (* the exact measurements will be available once your local eco-quartier/borough receives the trees). The height, width and growth habit of mature trees are indicated on the fact sheets describing each tree variety.
