What are we tracking?
The total number of trees planted in the City of Brandon on city property by the Forestry & Horticulture Section.
How are we measuring this?
The total number of trees planted each month is tracked and compiled by the Forestry & Horticulture Chargehand.
What progress are we making?
In 2021, the Parks Section have targeted a total of 200 new trees to be planted, the bulk of which will occur in the spring and fall months. In years past we have been successful in receiving grant funding for the planting of additional trees. In 2020 we did not secure any additional funding. Tree grant funding has been factored in the 2021 projection.
