Plant­ing on Ar­bor Day

The Compass - - OPINION -

June 1 was Ar­bor Day in New­found­land and Labrador. This event fo­cuses on trees and the role they play in the prov­ince’s en­vi­ron­ment, and co­in­cided with En­vi­ron­ment Week, which took place May 30-June 5. The cus­tom­ary ob­ser­vance is to plant a tree, and that’s ex­actly what hap­pened in Spa­niard’s Bay and Bay Roberts. This ini­tia­tive was started in 2009 by Land­scape New­found­land and Labrador to bring aware­ness to the im­por­tance of green spa­ces in ur­ban and ru­ral ar­eas.
