The City of Regina is planting 370 more trees with the help of CN and Tree Canada.
The process began Thursday morning with the help of students at Wilfred Hunt School, as they planted trees along the Pilot Butte Creek Pathway.
Community Advisor for Tree Canada D’Arcy Schenk said trees do well when planted in the spring and fall.
“Fall is a good time, we just had this snow and rain, which has kind of put a bit of a damper on things, but planting trees can be done either time and with good success.”

City Councillor Lori Bresciani said work is being done to meet the city’s ‘one tree for one person’ goal.
“It’s moving in the right direction, we know that of course trees are needed in the city, and I think that that’s kind of where we’re moving to,” Bresciani said. “I’m very grateful for CN and the partnership here with the City of Regina.”
About 130 trees will be planted this year, with 80 trees planted per year over the next three years.
