Our Programs

Through our programs, we are working with Londoners to plant trees throughout the Forest City, and to make it easier for Londoners to plant trees on their own properties.

Our ongoing initiatives have been developed under four program areas:

  • Inspiration and Education - Inspiring and educating Londoners about the value of trees, and how to plant and care for them so that they are empowered to make London one of the best-treed cities in North America.
  • Tree Planting - Getting our hands dirty in the community, working with volunteers to plant trees in neighbourhoods, parks, natural areas, industrial areas, and schools to improve our tree cover. View our Tree Plantings Schedule and Neighbourhood Planting Schedule.
  • Tree Growing and Distribution - Getting trees to Londoners by growing, selling, and giving away trees to get low-cost trees into neighbourhoods, removing barriers to planting in our own yards.
  • Tree Gifts - Giving individual Londoners as well as businesses a green and healthy gift option to remember loved ones, celebrate milestones, and reward employees and customers.

Learn more about all our initiatives below. Read some of our Success Stories for examples of these programs in action.

Tree Planting

 

Neighbourhood ReLeaf

ReForest London has launched a city-wide initiative to provide a tree for every Londoner that wants one. We want Londoners from all of our diverse communities to take action in creating a more sustainable city through the planting of trees.

We will offer free trees to any Londoner who wants to plant one in their yard, plus opportunities to plant in a public park. We will create hundreds of opportunities for Londoners who want to join this city-wide “Neighbourhood ReLeaf” initiative. Learn more.

   Park Naturalizations
