Grandview’s Historic Elms Win Recognition

The stretch of elms that runs along 6th Avenue in the nine-block stretch between Woodland Drive and Nanaimo Street has been recognized by the Vancouver Heritage Foundation as one of the 125 Places That Matter, celebrating the city’s 125th anniversary.

We are told that the elms received the third largest number of votes out of the 125 spots, and that a number of plaques will be put up to recognize the importance of these trees to the community.

The group of community activists who worked hard to save these elms are to be congratulated and it is excellent news that they and their work are now to be recognized.
