Saturday, April 30th, 2022 AgMedica Bioscience Inc. employees joined officials from the Lower Thames Valley Conservation Authority for a tree planting and clean-up event, located on Riverview Dr.
The event featured the addition of two glorious Sycamore trees that will grow as tall as 100 feet as they mature. These trees produce generous amounts of carbon-rich leaves, seeds, and bark that will benefit the surrounding green space.
“AgMedica has strong roots in Agriculture & Horticulture, and we use that background every day at work. When discussing ideas for a community initiative, it only made sense to find a way to contribute back to the environment," said Jessie Bodnar, Event Co-Organizer and AgMedica Forecasting Lead.
Around 30 employees and their families came out to help clean the surrounding area on Riverview Dr.
“We chose Sycamore trees because they start spreading seeds six or seven years after they are planted, and optimum seed production occurs between 50 and 200 years old. These trees are fast-growing; if they have sufficient moisture when they’re young, they have the potential to grow 2 feet or more annually,” said Mike Shore, Event Co-Organizer and ALUS Chatham-Kent Coordinator and Lands Tech.
