With such a beautiful fall season this year, we were so excited to be able to hold public hikes and bring Londoners through London's natural areas. We visited 4 parks around the city and learned about invasive species management, tree identification, and more!

In the past three years, 600 trees have found new homes in the yards of Londoners, thanks to the generous community support of Convertus. That’s a lot of trees and a big commitment to making the Forest City greener.

In celebration of National Forest Week, ReForest London hosted a special business planting event to kick off the week at Meadowgate Park.

This year marks the Celebration Forest’s 10th anniversary. Thank you to all who attended, our staff and volunteers, and our sponsors for helping us create a greener future for London.

Old Oak Properties has a long history with trees and they are a big supporter of planting more trees in London through their Silver Sponsorship of the Million Tree Challenge.

We held our last Tree Depot of the fall, and 2019, wrapping up a successful season and a beautiful fall.

We finished a planting event with a stewardship-minded group from Stoney Creek Baptist Church

We held our annual interfaith planting with 11 groups, which placed over 300 trees around Paul Haggis Pond.

We held our multicultural planting at Vauxhall Park, planting over 400 trees with hundreds of volunteers!

We planted 307 trees to start reconnecting forests around the Talbot Wetlands.

One thing we know for sure is that Londoners love trees and every year, during one particular week, it is evident for all to see! That special time is National Forest Week and if any community should embrace this celebration of trees, it’s the Forest City.

We planted along the ravine at Coves ESA to increase the forest cover, then tried our best to protect it all from the deer.

Our first public planting of the fall was a huge success!

We celebrated National Tree Day with four Tree Depot events in one day!

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

For the second year in a row, Renewi Canada has shown their love of trees and community by hosting a Tree Depot at their head office on Dingman Drive.

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.
