Effective immediately, the City of Kamloops’ annual tree coupons are available to the public as part of the City’s Tree Coupon Program. The coupons have a $20 or $50 value, depending on the price of the selected tree.
The Tree Coupon Program supports the City's goal of increasing our community's tree canopy to 20% from the current 12%, as identified in its Urban Forestry Management Strategy. Urban trees provide many social, health, environmental, and economic benefits, from removing atmospheric carbon dioxide and absorbing air pollutants to reducing energy consumption and increasing property values.
Residents interested in obtaining a tree coupon can pick one up at one of the following locations, Monday–Friday, 8:30 am–4:00 pm:
- City Hall, 7 Victoria Street West
- Civic Operations Centre, 955 Concordia Way
- Community and Protective Services Office, 2nd floor, Tournament Capital Centre, 910 McGill Road
- Westsyde Pool and Fitness Centre, 859 Bebek Road (visit Kamloops.ca/Swim for facility hours)
A total of 750 coupons are available on a first-come, first-served basis, with a limit of one coupon per household. Residents who pick up a tree coupon are able to redeem their coupons for a $20 or $50 value at a participating location.
