Riverview Trees!

Celebrating Trees Riverview!

I was very pleased to support a new group supporting our urban canopy in Riverview. Trees Riverview received a grant for $14,441 from the Fort Rouge East Fort Garry Ward Allocation.   

The planting project as proposed by Trees Riverview and will cover the costs of hiring a contractor to purchase, plant, maintain and water 20-25 boulevard trees for two years.

Planting is expected to take place in Spring 2021. Together with staff from the city’s Urban Forestry Branch, Trees Riverview has identified planting locations for 22 trees to replace those lost on three blocks of Baltimore Road.  These trees will be in addition to any trees planted by the City of Winnipeg's Urban Forestry Branch.

Trees Riverview mandate is: 

  1. To provide accurate education and information to residents to preserve and enhance our neighbourhood-defining tree canopy
  2. Directly contribute to tree-planting initiatives on our boulevards
  3. Advocate for effective policies and procedures that facilitate increased neighbourhood tree planting.

To get involved with Trees Riverview please send an email to
Trees Riverview plans to offer residents the opportunity to donate money for additional trees and I hope their work launching this year during a pandemic is just the first step in what we hope will become a much bigger project in years to come. 

Congratulations Trees Riverview!!
