A huge thank you to all the volunteers who served as block captains and all the folks who chipped in to band our neighbourhood’s beloved boulevard trees!!
Glenelm’s first-ever neighbourhood-wide tree banding campaign, which aims to prevent cankerworm defoliation, was a huge success. On many blocks we were able to achieve 100% banding coverage, thanks to the generosity of many who donated a little extra cash above and beyond “their” boulevard trees.
More special thanks to:
- Glenelm School PAC, who covered the cost of banding boulevard trees along the school
- Councillor Jason Schreyer, who covered the cost of banding all the boulevard trees on Beatrice, and
- John Russell, who donated honey as a thank-you gift to each of the block captains!
This was a true community effort, with hundreds of households participating!
