ReForest London is planting trees all over the city, in neighbourhoods, schoolyards, parks, and natural areas.  Check out our past projects by browsing below, or by sorting the projects by type, year, or location.

Projects

We planted with our sponsor Canada Life along the Veterans' Memorial Parkway.

We joined one of our sponsors, Renewi, for a native tree giveaway at their Dingman Drive location.

We joined Longworth Retirement Community to offer fruit and nut trees to the community of London.

We joined the opening celebration of the new Fanshawe College South Campus on Friday, September 6th for our first Tree Depot of the fall.

We helped connect parks along the Fairmont Trail with student volunteers from Western Orientation Serves.

Thank you to all the community members who came out to our Tree Depot events and planted trees in their yards to help increase the amount of tree cover in London!

We had such a great day working with the team from LEADS to care for our baby trees and plant more than 40 new seedlings at Peppertree Park!

At the beginning of June, Citi Cards Canada and their families came out to help us care for our Celebration Forest and celebrate their 100th anniversary in Canada. Everyone had an amazing time and the trees look great!

Thank you to everyone who came out to help and to Citi Cards for all of your support over the years!

On Sunday June 16, a group of amazing Fanshawe students joined us at Enterprise SWM to help care for our baby trees! The site looks absolutely beautiful and we are so grateful for all of your hard work and enthusiasm!

“If everyone in London planted and registered two trees, we’d reach our goal of a million new trees for London!” remarked Mayor Ed Holder at the May 16, Million Tree Challenge celebration at Robinson Mitsubishi.

Grade 4 and 5 students at St. Kateri Catholic Elementary School participated in our Seeds to Forest program in 2019, learning all about trees and planting 21 new trees in their schoolyard!

The event had an incredible line up, and we sold out in just under 45 minutes! A big thank you to our Tree Specialist volunteers for bravely attending the first Tree Depot of 2019 and helping make the event run so smoothly! Thank you to the Bostwick YMCA for hosting us! And a BIG thank you to the City of London's Tree Me Tree Matching Fund for generously funding this event. We are excited for another busy year ahead!

Thank you to our amazing volunteers and everyone who waited so patiently in line. Thank you so much to the City of London`s Tree Me Tree Matching Fund and the WWF Go Wild Community Grant for funding this event. Keep an eye out for 3 more Wildlife Tree Depots this year.

Stoney Creek Baptist Church is certainly looking leafier after our planting event with over 60 hardworking volunteers!

We cannot believe that we planted 200 native trees and shrubs in just over an hour! Thank you to our amazing volunteers from Enbridge and the local neighbourhood!

Spring finally arrived! What an absolutely perfect day for planting with almost 70 eager volunteers!

We had the pleasure of working with some amazing staff from LMHC to design and plant two reading circles at the Marconi and Limberlost properties with the residents to enjoy for years to come!

The last planting of spring 2018 was a success!   We headed out to the Family Services Thames Valley property to add a new naturalization area, some larger trees around the parking lot, and a fresh new relaxing garden space.

What better way to spend Earth Day 2018 than with a group of your colleagues, outside in the warm sun, planting trees?!

It was cold!  But our tireless team of volunteers stepped up to the task to expand the existing woodland at Crestwood Woods in Byron!

The perfect planting day was upon us!  Thank you to everyone in the neighbourhood for making this such a successful (and speedy!) event!

Our friends from IKEA joined us on a hot, summer, weekday afternoon an d helped transform this Hyde Park neighbourhood park!

Volunteers from London Life joined us on June 2nd to add 270 native trees and shrubs to expand the existing woodland at Sovereign Woods for their 10th annual planting!

At first thought, you may not connect a car dealership with helping make London greener but in the case of Robinson Mitsubishi, there is a strong and growing connection due to their new plug in hybrid vehicle. A new MTC Partner in 2018, Robinson Mitsubishi quickly got to work promoting a greener community through many different supportive initiatives.

Our first planting of fall 2018 went off without a hitch!  Over 120 volunteers came out to spend their beautiful Saturday planting 450 trees in this Byron park as a part of the official CN Ecoconnexions kick-off with Tree Canada!
