Project Description


Lachine, Kirkland, Baie-D’Urfé and Saint-Laurent

The project

In an effort to have a positive impact on its community, Triovest wanted to improve the industrial sites of its buildings by integrating more green spaces. Faced with a number of diseased ash trees, the company also took advantage of our team’s expertise to get advice and diversify the species on its property, to avoid more large-scale felling operations. In total, nearly 90 trees were added to the company’s sites in four separate plantings in Lachine, Kirkland, Baie-D’Urfé and Saint-Laurent.

The trees that were planted will make the landscape more attractive and improve air quality for employees by capturing dust in these industrial neighbourhoods. The trees will enhance the facades of the buildings and help reduce wind and snow squalls in winter. They will also protect against noise by forming sound barriers. The plantings will also benefit employee morale, as the green spaces created by mature trees will make it easier for people to connect with one another. So, whether it is to chat, eat or listen to the birds sing, the trees will promote the employees’ well-being. At some sites, trees were also planted at the edge of the parking lot to limit heat islands and, consequently, the temperature inside employees’ cars. Particular attention was paid to the choice of species; those that produce little nectar or resin were favoured to avoid staining the cars.
