Massive Tree Planting In Ottawa

Posted by wlpo on April 2, 2011

The process of planting nearly one thousand trees in Ottawa begins Monday.

In 2009, Ottawa received a 337 thousand dollar grant to plant trees along state highways.  Starting tomorrow, a contractor will begin positioning the new trees along Route’s 6 and 23.  The trees include several types of shade trees and ornamentals.  The planting will last all the way thru Mid-May.

City officials say the bid for these trees came in under estimate so they have money left over to plant more trees next year.
