One hundred new trees have sprung up along the Kissing Bridge Trail between Arthur Street and Floradale Road.
Twenty volunteers from the Lions Club planted the sugar maple trees along the trail as part of a beautification project.
“We have been maintaining this trail for years and we just wanted to add more to it,” said Art Wood of the club.
The club received help from Maple Leafs Forever, a foundation that assists organizations by paying half the costs of acquiring trees.
“We will have planted 100 Canadian seed sugar maple trees by the end of the day,” said Wood. “We have a lot of people out helping and the trail will look great with all the new trees.”
The trees ranged in height between six and eight feet.
“These are not little saplings,” said Wood. “We have some heavy equipment to help us and we’ll just have to get in there and use our muscles.”
