City of Nanaimo to sell some more $20 tree vouchers

Residents can get discounts on trees through city program

Starting on Monday, Jan. 15, the city will once again provide $20 vouchers for trees.

The vouchers, which can be redeemed at Green Thumb Garden Centre for designated trees worth up to $75 in value, will be available for purchase at the City of Nanaimo Service and Resource Centre at 411 Dunsmuir Street.

The city’s tree voucher partnership program with Green Thumb Garden Centre raises awareness about the importance of trees in urban environments and has proven popular in the past when vouchers have sold out quickly at community events such as the Wild Foods and Earth Day Festival and Rivers Day.

A total of 400 vouchers will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis with a limit of two vouchers per property. The vouchers will expire on March 25, 2018 and are available only to City of Nanaimo residents.

Proof of residency or photo ID may be required.
