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

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!

We had some abnormal summer weather for both of these planting events, but our volunteers worked hard and got the job done!  Thank you to our neighbourhood volunteers and Stantec for joining us to completely transform this site!

A huge thank you to the City of London for supporting this project at a newly finished stormwater management pond in Lambeth!  We spent a wonderful weekday evening with members of the community to help transform this newly constructed pond!

It was a hot one!  Our amazing volunteers from Fairstone Financial joined us for a morning of sunshine to add new trees and shrubs to this park in the North West end of the city!

We worked over the course of two separate days to add over 250 native trees and shrubs to the banks of a stormwater mangement pond in the north west end of the City!

We were joined by superstar volunteers from the Western University Community as well as Sir Arthur Currie Public School at the end of September to expand some existing forest cover in Thames Park!  Be sur to drop by and see the new trees added around the playgrounds!

Yet another beautiful afternoon to plant trees!  We have been working hard this year at incorporating more stormwater management ponds into our planting projects.  Check out this story to see the work we did!

Londoners LOVE weekday plantings!  Together with Western's MES Class, and staff from Budweiser Gardens and Orgaworld, we spent an afternoon in the east end of London expanding an existing woodland at Shelborne Park South.

Thank you to LUSO and Fanshawe Residences for bringing an amazing crew of volunteers to the first of two multicultural tree planting events we hosted this fall!

What an amazing group of friendly faces!  Thank you to SLNRC, YMAP, and Old Oak Properties for bringing some serious muscle and planting over 240 trees in this neighbourhood park!  This was the second of two multicultural events ReForest London hosted this fall.  Read the story to learn about more highlights from the day!

It was cold but we were determined!  Thank you to our amazing volunteers who spent their Sunday afternoon with us at Grampian Woods adding over 150 native trees and shrubs to this park near the industrial area of the city.

We were small but mighty!  Together a small group of volunteers braved the wind and the rain and planted over 130 native trees and shrubs at Dingman Park!  Thank you to everyone who was determined to finish despite Mother Nature not being on our side!

Once again, we are so thrilled to work with London's Interfaith Community.  This was our 6th year completing an interfaith planting project in the City.  This team of volunteers worked hard, worked together, and successfully planted just under 400 native trees and shrubs to Halls Mills Park.

Every year in late September, the Forest City celebrates National Tree Day. It falls on the Wednesday of National Forest Week and in London it has become a big part of the Million Tree Challenge’s focus. Londoners have even been known to wish each other “Happy National Tree Day!”

The London landscape just got a lot greener thanks to Renewi  Canada Limited who gave away 200 trees for people to plant in their yards!  Renewi, formerly Orgaworld, is also one of the Million Tree Challenge’s newest Bronze level sponsors and we thank them for being such amazing community supporters.

Old Oak Properties is a new Million Tree Challenge Silver Sponsor and official oak tree sponsor for ReForest London's 2018 planting season.

As this is the last weekend of October, we held the very last tree depots of the season - and for the year.

On Monday, October 29th, ReForest London planted a community orchard at the London Food Bank.

It was a tree-ly amazing weekend for tree depots with ReForest London!

On a beautiful autumn Saturday, with blue skies and a bright sun, ReForest London had it's first ever Fruit Tree Depot!

With the sun shining bright and a vibrant blue sky, ReForest London headed out to King's University College to help plant the King's Community Orchard on Sunday October 14th.

During the month of September, ReForest London held two planting events at Cantebury Park to add 415 native trees and shrubs!

This year's Western Fair was a great success with nearly 900 seedlings given away, and thousands of conversations had! 

ReForest London had a busy weekend giving away trees!
