Councillor Wants Urban Tree Farm In Bridgewater

A new idea has sprouted up to try and grow more trees in Bridgewater. Councillor Michael Graves is behind the plan. He would like to start planting tree saplings and then re-plant them five, 10 or 15 years down the road in different areas of Bridgewater or sell them to other municipalities. He says the trees would be planted in a controlled environment.

Graves feels there would be little costs and he would like to see the program implemented as early as next year. However, town staff will issue a report back to council on the capabilities of the project.
