A couple of participants from last year’s TD Tree Day take a break from planting trees in Parksville.

TD Tree Day back in Parksville Sept. 21

More than 125 trees will be planted in Humphrey Park

  • Sep. 11, 2014 3:00 p.m.

According to a news release issued by TD Bank Group, a recent study conducted by TD Friends of the Environment Foundation (TD FEF) 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,” stated the release, explaining the event is a volunteer program that allows community members to contribute to a greener environment.

The release stated 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 18 sites across the province.

One of the TD Tree Day sites selected is in Parksville, where more than 125 trees will be planted by volunteers. In recent years, a number of trees in the forested area were removed, this program will reforest some of the open area to fill in the canopy. The event will take place Saturday, Sept. 21 at 9 a.m. in Humphrey Park.
