Deux-Montagnes takes over tree planting relay

On the occasion of its 50th anniversary, Earth Day Canada launched its Municipal Tree Planting Relay, a Canada-wide movement during which every 22nd of the month, for one year, municipalities announce their commitment to plant at least 50 trees. The City of Deux-Montagnes proudly took over the relay on October 22, announcing the planting of some 130 trees, including those planted in recent weeks along Boulevard Deux-Montagnes.

“We attach great importance to tree cover in Deux-Montagnes. The presence of trees on our territory not only contributes to beautifying and greening the landscape around us, but also brings many well-known benefits, such as improving air quality and reducing heat islands” says Mayor Denis Martin.
