Trees planted at l’École secondaire catholique de Plantagenet for Earth Day

By , the Review, May 15, 2018

On Monday, May 7, 2018, it was planting day for a group of students from the Intermediate Building at the Catholic High School in Plantagenet. Led by Charles Tittley, deputy director, and several members of Boisés Est, students created the foundations of a windbreak hedge by planting two rows of trees made of silver maples and white spruce trees on to grounds owned by the Eastern Ontario Catholic District School Board (CSDCEO), located near the school. Bernard Filion, treasurer of Boisés Est, who was on hand, highlights the enthusiasm of the participants, ‘a real tornado’, he says, but a constructive tornado!

The Intermediate Pavilion and Boisés Est collaborate each year in several activities aimed at familiarizing students with the forest. It is already planned to return to the field in June to check that the small trees have started to grow, and protect them from raspberries and other plants that may suffocate them.
