CN to award 50 grants for tree plantings

CN announced earlier this week that it would award grants of 25,000 Canadian dollars to 50 communities to fund local tree planting projects across Canada.

The 2017 grant awards double from 25 to 50 the number of communities that have received grants in previous years, according to a CN press release.

The awards are part of the sixth year of CN's EcoConnexions "From the Ground Up" program launched in partnership with "Tree Canada" and "Communities in Bloom."

Selected communities will each receive a CA$25,000 grant from CN, a plaque and a ceremonial tree to be planted in celebration of Canada's 150th anniversary.

Since CN launched From the Ground Up in 2012, more than 60,000 trees and shrubs have been planted in Canada.
