Tree Strong (Fort)

Check out the full post of Louise’s latest Out on a Limb (Sept 8 2015) chez her blog  the blahgg blog.

I’m going to go out on a limb here (pun intended) and suggest that in Salmon Arm, we live in an urban forest.

What distinguishes us from many other communities is the tree canopy that surrounds and protects us. It’s as though the town was conveniently placed at the base of a natural forested amphitheatre from Bastion Mountain to the north, to Fly Hills to the east, Mount Ida to the south and Larch Hills to the east.

Our urban trees :  Valuable to homeowners and a hugely important community asset overall.

  1. I have noticed in all the major cities I have visited in Canada that the areas that have high property values are heavily treed.

    Our own house is immensely more attractive, cooler in the summer, and sheltered in the winter due to the 19 trees we have planted and nurtured over the past 40 years.
