I am disappointed with SaskTel and the lack of trees an landscaping around their new Electrical Energy Centre at the prominent corner of Lorne and 11th. There was some landscaping before they ripped everything out. As well, the renders showed trees lining both Lorne and 11th. There were several areas left open to add landscaping after construction but those have all been now cemented over, including the corner and large area next to the alley on 11th. there is one lonely tree on the south end of the property that the City planted when they redid all of Lorne last year.
I find SaskTel to be a poor corporate citizen when it comes to trees. The trees around their head office and very large parkade downtown are non-existing or not maintained. When they ripped down the Presuitti's building on Lorne for a surface parking lot, it took them about 5 years to plant 2 spindling trees.
