2021 Vernon Tree Program

We can take action to help our community become more resilient and better able to adapt to major events while practicing physical distancing measures.

The City of Vernon is continuously working to promote a healthy, enjoyable and safe community by encouraging residents to plant trees. Trees can help offer energy cost savings by providing shade, reduce sound and dust pollution to your property, and reduce the impacts of stormwater on flood events - all while enhancing the value of your property.

As part of the 2021 Vernon Tree Program, receive a $25 voucher toward the purchase of a shade tree at Nicholas Alexander Home & Garden or Swan Lake Market & Garden to plant on your own property!

Conditions:
  • To ensure trees establish well and are planted during the best conditions (spring and autumn), vouchers must be redeemed at participating stores between April 22 and June 13, or August 28 and October 10, 2021. Vouchers will expire after October 10, 2021.

  • One voucher per household for Vernon residential property owners only while supplies last.

  • It is recommended that owners consult with their landscaping specialist to determine the best suited shade tree for their property dependant on site specific conditions. It is also recommended that owners consider WaterWise species for the North Okanagan and follow FireSmart Landscaping Guidelines and FireSmart principles while planning for landscaping for their property. Voucher applicable towards the purchase of a live shade tree only. Fruit trees, hedges, and bushes are not applicable. 

To apply for your voucher:
  • Please email csbreception@vernon.ca with your name (you should be the owner of the property) and your civic address quoting “2021 Tree Program Voucher Request” in the subject line of the email. Please allow a week for us to respond to your request.

Please note that while we all work together to contain the spread of COVID-19, the City continues to follow directives of provincial and federal health authorities at an ongoing basis. Be prepared that the program may change or be altered on short notice.  If you have any questions regarding the program, please contact Community Infrastructure and Development Services at 250-550-3634 or csbreception@vernon.ca.
