Kamloops, BC – The City of Kamloops’ annual tree coupons will be available to the public May 1 through June 17. The coupons have a $20 or $50 value, depending on the price of the selected tree.
The Tree Coupon Program supports the City’s goal of increasing our community’s tree canopy from the current 12% to 20%, as identified in its Urban Forestry Management Strategy. Urban trees provide many social, health, environmental, and economic benefits, from removing atmospheric carbon dioxide and absorbing air pollutants to reducing energy consumption and increasing property values.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, coupons will not be available for pickup at City facilities. Coupons will be available at these participating nurseries:
- Agri Supply
- Art Knapp
- Canadian Tire – Aberdeen
- Canadian Tire – North Shore
- Country Garden Greenhouses & Nursery
- Home Depot
- Lyons Garden and Landscape Centre
- Purity Feed Co.
A total of 500 coupons will be available on a first-come, first-served basis to residents within Kamloops’ municipal boundaries, with a limit of one per household. Residents will need to supply proof of address in the form of a driver’s licence or a City of Kamloops utility or property tax statement.
Coupons will only be available at the time of purchase of an eligible tree and cannot be picked up at one store and used at another store, nor can coupons be picked up for use at a later date.
