The City of Ottawa is ready to embark on a maple tree spending spree to celebrate Canada’s tree-mendous 150th anniversary.

The “Canada 150 Maple Grove” project will see 150 maple trees planted in each of the city’s 23 municipal wards at a cost of $345,000.

The trees will be planted together in formal groves on public lands which have been selected by councillors and staff, according to forest services manager David Barkley.
