A recent study by TD Friends of the Environment Foundation found 96 per cent of Canadians feel it is important to plant trees today in order to sustain a healthy environment and improve the quality of life of future generations, and the majority want more trees planted in their communities.
Therefore, it’s the perfect time to participate in the fifth annual TD Tree Days events – a volunteer program that allows community members to contribute to a greener environment.
This fall, more than 4,224 trees will be planted by 775 volunteers – including many TD employees and their families, customers and community partners – at 17 sites across B.C.
One of the TD Tree Days sites selected is in Surrey where more than 690 trees will be planted with a variety of native coniferous trees, deciduous trees and shrubs that represent the diversity in the existing natural area by volunteers.
The TD Tree Days Tree Planting takes place Saturday, Sept. 20 at 9 a.m. at Royal Heights Park, 9797 115A St.
