Planting Incentive Programs
We are pleased to announce our participation in the Ensemble on verdit (EOV) program, which offers a turnkey service for the planting of new trees, subsidized by the Village for private properties. Thanks to the subsidy, citizens can get a tree planted at a reduced cost of $50 per tree. It should be noted that this service is not offered for tree replacement. The project is led by Groupe de recommandations et d’actions pour un meilleur environnement (GRAME), Senneville’s partner for the 2023 summer season. The tree planting service will be offered from May 1 to September 1, 2023, depending on the availability of funds.
Purchasing a tree with Ensemble on verdit includes:
– The tree, 35 mm in diameter and 2 to 2.5 meters tall;
– Planting material (soil, mulch, mycorrhizae);
– A trunk protector for the winter;
– Planting by the GRAME team of professionals;
– Access to customer service to answer all your questions; and
– A one-year warranty on the health of the tree under certain conditions.
Replacement tree planting
The Financial Assistance Program for tree replacement is also continuing this year. An amount of $500 per property will be granted to Senneville residents who apply for financial assistance after obtaining a certificate of authorization to cut down a tree. For more information on the terms and conditions, please consult By-law relating to the establishment of a financial assistance program for the replacement of a tree.
Tree planting on public rights-of-way
Register by email at firstname.lastname@example.org to select your tree species in the public right-of-way
Senneville will continue its tree planting efforts on public rights-of-way, a process we began in 2022. The planting of trees on rights-of-way selected by the Village is mandatory. This year, citizens will be able to volunteer for public right-of-way tree planting. Doing so will ensure that you get a new tree in front of your property in 2023 and that you get to choose it from a list of tree species. In addition, you will receive a visit from a GRAME greening agent to choose the perfect spot for your new tree. To participate, contact the GRAME team at: email@example.com.
