A tree, a child – To grow together

The Town of Beresford and its Environment and Beautification Committee are proud to present a new program that will offer one tree per new born or adopted child from our town! This program is offered in partnership with Pelouse Brunswick, a company established in Beresford.

The birth or the adoption of a child is a major life event for any family. This new being will enrich its family and join our community. Like a tree, this child will grow and flourish; both will enliven our lives through their presence.

Whether it be planted on family land or in one of the Town’s park, the tree will grow, prosper and embellish our community for many years, in the image of the child it is associated with.

The Town of Beresford will organize the planting in a spot of the parent’s choosing and a plaque, in the language of the parents’ choice, will be attached to the tree to identify the child to which it is associated. The species chosen for this program: maple, oak, linden, ash and crabapple are sure to embellish our neighborhood.

The program is currently taking applications for children born or adopted in 2020. Interested residents must fill out and submit the application form.
