INVASIVE TREE REMOVAL A new grant opportunity
As a Tree City USA for over 25 years, Vancouver loves its trees. However the invasive Tree of Heaven and Black Locust are the exception to our tree-loving rule. These invaders have taken root in yards, streets and alleys across Vancouver and have spread rapidly over the years; causing sidewalk, foundation and other property damage and choking out precious resources for beneficial street and yard trees. In response, the Vancouver Watersheds Alliance has teamed up with the Urban Forestry Commission and the City of Vancouver Urban Forestry(unsure) to help educate the community and control these fast growing invaders. Through their Neighborhood Sustainability Grant Program, Vancouver Watersheds Alliance is offering grants of up to $1,500 to assist property owners within active neighborhood associations meet costs associated with invasive tree removal.
