Who We Are
We are a grassroots volunteer group working as a subcommittee of the Bayfield River Valley Trail Association. Our goal is to plant trees along village streets in Bayfield (on Municipal property) to replace old, dying trees and populate treeless areas of the village. In consultation with local residents, we are planting a few streets at a time. We began by planting along the Heritage Trail.
We would also like to work with our neighbours in other parts of Bluewater to encourage tree planting across the Municipality.
As a result of age and disease, many of our streets are losing the beautiful trees that once graced our village. We're working hard to bring back our tree canopy.
Tree Committee Members:
