The Westboro Beach Community Association was successful in obtaining $8500 from the Community Tree Planting Program to plant 17 new trees at Westboro Beach. The trees were planted on June 16th.
The choice of trees was made by the WBCA; the National Capital Commission, the City of Ottawa tree forester and Jeff Kaster, a Westboro resident who volunteered to design the project and help with the tendering. The trees are three Eastern Poplar, five Bigtooth Aspen, three Autumn Blaze Maple, three Silver Maple, two Red Maple and one Black Willow.
We have several enthusiastic volunteers watering the trees each week; if you want to be involved please contact us.
