Headingley neighbours want to plant trees

  • Print

Bill Harrison and other Marston Meadows residents want to plant trees along the berm and sidewalk lying between their subdivision and Roblin Boulevard.

The Marston Meadows subdivision is about 14 years old, and while there are trees in most yards, Harrison said there aren’t many growing along the edge of the neighbourhood, which lies to the east of the Roblin Boulevard and Bridge Road intersection.

"They (trees) are few and far between," said Harrison, who sent a letter to RM of Headingley council asking for permission and support for the tree-planting project.

Harrison said he spoke to some neighbours about the idea and they have volunteered to help plant trees. He’s also willing to fundraise to buy trees from local nurseries, hoping to get some hardier species able to thrive next to a busy roadway.

In his letter, he asked if council is willing to match the funds raised by Marston Meadows residents to buy trees. His request will be discussed and voted on at a future council meeting.

Harrison said he hopes to have the trees planted this summer if council approves the project.
