There are more trees growing in Brownsburg-Chatham now.

More than 80 young people recently helped plant 240 trees at two locations in the town.

The planting was sponsored by three partner organizations and the municipality as part of Arbre Évolution’s social reforestation program.

Arbre Évolution obtains private funding to support community reforestation projects in Québec.

“Thanks to this program, we were able to take the lead greening our main public park and the approaches to our municipal workshops, ” said Brownsburg-Chatham Mayor Catherine Trickey.

The number of trees Arbre Évolution has planted since last year has increased from 10,000 to more than 30,000.

Students from local schools assisted with the planting.  They included 50 students from the École St-Julien alternative program and 30 younger children from garderie Rêve de Caillette.  Approximately 15 adult volunteers, including representatives from Yogang and Femmessor also participated in the planting.

“We are very happy with the progress of the activity and the positive impact of these new trees on our landscape!” said Trickey.
