On the morning of Saturday, September 15th community members from the King area joined LEAF, the Township of King and the Reginal Municipality of York for a public tree planting event! Even though it was a hot, balmy day, energy levels were high and everyone’s excitement could be seen as tree after tree went into the ground.
