Parkland Nurseries employees David Larsen and Daniel Lapalme move Tartarian Maple trees into position at the retail site east of Red Deer on Tuesday. The Centenial Tree project is a project coordinated by the Red Deer 2013 Centennial Committee and is open to anyone who would like to participate. Participants can choose from three plants in the program the Tartarian Maple, a dogwood shrub and a Lilly in a pot. Vouchers for the plants can be purchased at the Centennial office at 4818 50 Ave on Little Gaetz. Prices for the plants range from $6 for the lilly, $30 for the dogwood shrub and from $90 to $125 for the maple trees. All of the plants are hardy, and chosen for their suitability for this climate. The plants were also chosen for their red colouration. The maple has lovely red seed pods and brilliant red leaves in fall, the dogwood has red bark that shows beautifully in the winter, and the lily is a deep red.
