Every Londoner Plants a Tree

 

elpt banner 2

The Million Tree Challenge has surpassed a tree planted for every Londoner: 383,822! (London's population in the 2016 census)

Now is the time for every Londoner to plant a tree and register it in the Million Tree Challenge. Why do we need more trees? The tree cover in London is well below healthy standards, so we NEED to plant more trees. Trees are superstars. Trees make it easier to breathe by removing pollutants from the air and they reduce heating and cooling costs. Trees make your property worth more, they provide shade, privacy and habitat for wildlife and they create a more beautiful and sustainable city for EVERYONE!

If you plant a tree on your London property, be sure to also entre our Plant & Win contest.

How do I participate? Here are three ways...

1. Get a free tree at one of ReForest London’s tree depots or seedling giveaways.

2. Go to one of our Million Tree Challenge Partner garden centres and purchase a tree.

A&M Garden Centre - Whether you’re looking to buy plants for your garden or looking to have your yard completely redone, you’re guaranteed exceptional service at A&M. We’re large enough to offer you a full line of garden and landscaping supplies, but remain small enough to offer the personalized service you’ve come to expect over the years. From fresh-cut sod and seed to trees and shrubs, we have everything you’re looking for.

Heritage Garden Gallery is a year-round greenhouse and retail business that has served the London area for over 30 years. Our stock includes perennials, annuals, tropical plants and trees.

From shade trees to ornamentals and flowering shrubs, we carry a wide selection of locally-grown nursery stock that add colour, fragrance or texture. Trees create architectural interest in a yard and are often the ‘bones’ of a landscape. Within our nursery, we’ve also identified which species are Native to this area. We’re proud to support London’s Million Tree Challenge: to inspire Londoners to plant one million trees to enhance environmental and human health in our Forest City.

If your gardens don’t bring you pleasure, we haven’t done our job.

3. If you don't have land to plant on, sponsor a tree for $25 to be planted in a park. Great if you live in an apartment or condo.
