Castlegar approves major tree planting effort

The city held a public meeting last week as their contractor presented different ideas and trees for the community.

Councillor Dan Rye says there are many positives to these plans and trees offer a beautiful aesthetic to a city.

The official plan says trees provide cleaner air, land, and water.
