On Monday, May 16th, the Vancouver Park Board announced its plan to select an official tree for the City of Vancouver. The nomination and selection process would include input from students in Vancouver schools, the public, and a panel with expertise in forest diversity. Once endorsed and adopted by the City of Vancouver, the official tree would be announced during Tree Week 2017.
We salute the Park Board for this excellent initiative and for everything they and their staff do year-round to care for, maintain and celebrate the 440,000 trees that grace our streets and parks. We look forward to sharing more information about the selection process when it becomes available. In the meantime, we encourage you to voice your support for the cherry tree with friends, via Twitter and on our Facebook page.
