Chantrell Creek students plant 75 trees

Grade 4 classes plant trees for City of Surrey's Releaf program



Chantrelle Creek Grade 4 students got their hands dirty planting trees last Tuesday as part of the City of Surrey’s Releaf Tree Planting Program.

Armed with shovels, the students planted 75 salmon berry and red alder trees at a green space across from the South Surrey school.

Mom Kristen Gribble, whose twin daughters, Avery and Allie, participated in the tree planting, said the school became involved after she nominated it for the program.

“We were given this opportunity for the fall, as they do the plantings in the spring and fall,” she explained.

Since 1991, the Releaf program has planted more than 10,000 trees throughout Surrey.
