Peace Trees to be replaced in Woodstream Park

Woodstream Park will see the removal of ten Peace Trees that have become diseased and damaged by snow this fall and replaced with new ones. The old trees, however, will still remain a fixture of the park.

"Some of the tree stumps have been used in the stream restoration project and will remain a part of the landscape," said, Al Britton, Parks Manager, "The new trees will continue the commemoration and be available for the public to enjoy soon."

In October 1992, ten ornamental, flowering plum trees were planted at Woodstream Park as a part of the Peace Parks across Canada initiative. Joining with towns, villages and cities all over Canada, the trees were planted to commemorate Canada's 125th anniversary.
