One Child, One Tree Program - First planting of public trees dedicated to children of Saint-Laurent

SAINT-LAURENT, May 14 /CNW Telbec/ - In connection with the One Child, One Tree program, members of Saint-Laurent Borough Council today marked the birth or adoption of Saint-Laurent children in 2010 on the occasion of the first-ever public-tree planting ceremony, held at the Bassin de la Brunante in Parc Marcel-Laurin.

During the event, which coincided with Quebec Family Week, families who had enrolled their children under the program received a certificate identifying the species and location of the tree twinned with their child as well as an info-sheet. Borough Council members also unveiled a commemorative plaque highlighting the site reserved for the One Child, One Tree program in the park.

"In 2009, we undertook a commitment to make Saint-Laurent a greener community by launching several initiatives aimed at planting trees on public land," said Alan DeSousa, mayor of Saint-Laurent and vice-chair of Montréal's Executive Committee. "The One Child, One Tree program was among these initiatives. The program also gave us the opportunity to link two of our priorities: to put trees at the heart of all our decisions and to make Saint-Laurent a destination of choice for families."

Citizens wishing to enrol their children, born or adopted in 2011, in the One Child, One Tree program may do so at the Borough of Saint-Laurent's Citizens' Office.
