On Thursday, June 20th over 30 volunteers with UPS Canada planted 150 silver maple trees on the Marysville Flats. One mature silver maple tree will uptake 220 litres of water every hour.
As these trees grow, they help stop climate change by removing carbon dioxide from the air, storing carbon in the trees and soil, and releasing oxygen into the atmosphere. Trees provide many benefits to us, every day. They offer cooling shade, block cold winter winds, attract birds and wildlife, purify our air, prevent soil erosion, clean our water, and add grace and beauty to our homes and communities.
Thanks to UPS Canada and the Arbor Day Foundation for their generous donation.
