There is work being done to continually improve and update the natural look of Kapuskasing.

That is according to Chairperson of Trees Kapuskasing Carmen Urbas, who says the Growing Roots for Each and Every Northerner project is for exactly that purpose and aims to have Kapuskasing covered in trees by its 100th anniversary.

Urbas says projects like this year’s on Ash and Cedar Street will see trees planted and hopefully some further additions down the road such as shrubs and benches to beautify the area.

She says the purpose of starting the Green TK to spread trees and plant life across the community, which they have done to a total of 200 trees planted per year.

Urbas says they plan to finish their project on the corner of Ash and Cedar sometime next year, and then they will have to sit down and discuss prior to deciding their next project.
