Burlington Receives Huge Donation to Plant More Trees

More fresh air is coming to Burlington.

The City of Burlington has received a huge donation to plant more trees.

The city has received a $10,000 donation from Union Gas to purchase and plant new trees in the area of Upper Middle and Havendale Roads, according to a recent news release.

The money will go towards a variety of trees to promote biodiversity in the area.

"We are fortunate to have such great community partners as Union Gas," Barb Rabicki, Manager of Forestry, City of Burlington, said in a recent news release.

"These trees will offer shade, wind protection, provide habitat, prevent erosion, clean our air and so much more. Their benefits will be enjoyed for many generations."

Union Gas is a Canadian natural gas storage, transmission and distribution company with over 100 years of experience.

"Union Gas supports the communities where we work and live, helping to create a strong, safe and healthy place for our neighbours," Mark Egbedeyi-Emmanuel, Hamilton-Halton District Manager, Union Gas, said in a recent news release.

"This tree planting partnership with the City of Burlington seeks to do just that by naturalizing an area that is not currently forested. We commend the City of Burlington for its ongoing commitment to champion solutions for safety, environmental and education issues."
