Kim Ellis (left) and her son Ben Ellis work to bury the roots of a newly planted tree at the Rotary Forest tree-planting event on Saturday. Volunteers came out by the bus-load to help plant more than 4,000 trees of various species in a field off Conservation Road, near the Guelph Lake Nature Centre. The project, a collaboration between the Rotary Club of Guelph and the Grand River Conservation Authority, aims to increase the city’s tree canopy and create a 40-hectare forest that will provide habitat for wildlife.
