Maple leafs of soccer?

The greening of Kitimat continues, even if the trees being plants are in fact red.

The greening of Kitimat continues, even if the trees being plants are in fact red.

As in the red maples that have been planted at the Bill Rich Soccer fields in the Kildala neighbourhood.

Kitimat Leisure Services director Martin Gould explained the department had last year successfully applied for a Community Greening Program grant.

The program is financed by BC Hydro and administered by Trees Canada with the intention of beautifying parks, greenways, community and open space areas. And Gould’s hopeful that this year’s application will also be successful.

This is far from the first time grants have allowed the city to add trees to its landscape – examples are along the top end of Haisla Hill and in the downtown facing Haisla Boulevard.

By the way, BC Hydro has only one stipulation when it comes to planting the trees – do not put them anywhere near a power line.
