In order to construct a driveway into Old Grace Housing Co-operative’s site, it has been necessary to remove a tree on the public boulevard on the Evanson Street side of the lot. A second boulevard tree is being removed because it is in poor health. Both trees are being removed with the approval of the City of Winnipeg.
Next year three new canopy trees—two on Evanson and one on Preston—will be planted on the public boulevards. OGHC will also be removing two existing concrete driveway entrances on the Evanson side of the lot. These areas will be planted with grass and returned to the boulevard. (To see photos of the areas that will be returned to the boulevard, click here).
In addition, OGHC will be planting 24 trees and 80 shrubs on three exterior sides of the building. For more OGHC’s planting program, click here.
