City of Parksville replacing 13 dead or dying trees in Woodland Park

New trees planted by city crews

City of Parksville operations crews will plant some new trees in Woodland Park (16 Woodland Dr.).

They will replace 13 dead and dying Western red cedars removed from the park a few years ago, according to a news release by the city.

The city was awarded a BC Hydro Community ReGreening Program grant of $2,500, matched by the city, to complete the park upgrade.

“In 2021, we engaged with the neighbours near Woodland Park to conduct a survey to help determine a vision and priorities for the park,” the release read. “In the survey, residents indicated a desire to see the addition of trees to the park.”

The operations crew began layout and digging holes last week and will continue work this week.

The trees chosen are a mixture of native trees, trees with fall colour, flowering trees and trees with colour through the season.
