Georgina Mayor and Councillors celebrate Backyard Tree Planting Program!

Description: In recognition of their collective efforts to create healthy, sustainable and livable communities by enhancing tree canopy cover, LEAF hosted a ceremonial tree planting at the home of Catherine & Chris, (Georgina residents) who participated in the subsidized Backyard Tree Planting Program offered by LEAF. The program is supported by the Regional Municipality of York and is available to all Georgina residents. Mayor Margaret Quirk, councillors Dave Harding & Naomi Davison attended the ceremony along with LEAF representatives and York Region Forestry to assist with the planting of a white paper birch tree. This particular home has been in the owner's family since 1966 and they have taken over the house a few years ago and turned it into an all year round residence. They have been busy planting a variety of shrubs, bushes and trees, with assistance and guidance from the LEAF program. For more information about LEAF, visit yourleaf.org
