Tree Program to Encourage Planting
Trees can enhance the value of your property, provide energy savings through shade and reduce sound and dust for your enjoyment. The City of Vernon is working to promote a healthy, enjoyable and safe community by encouraging residents to plant trees.
Benefits of trees:
- Beautify your neighbourhood and increase property value
- Provide shade, decrease cooling costs and lower greenhouse gas emissions
- Reduce dust and noise pollution for liveable communities
- Help slow down stormwater runoff
