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.


On Saturday May 6th, ReForest London staff, volunteers, and the University Heights community members set up for a tree depot at University Heights Public School. Although it was a chilly day, residents of the neighbourhood were excited to come by and pick out trees for their homes, lining up well before our start time of 9:30 a.m.

On Sunday May 7th, ReForest London staff and volunteers set up for our first tree blitz of the season in the historic Woodfield neighbourhood at Lord Roberts Public School. It was a beautiful sunny day, and volunteers arrived excited to go out in the neighbourhood with wagons fully loaded with trees.

On May 14th, which was also Mothers Day, ReForest London held the Kilally Tree Depot. ReForest London staff and volunteers arrived bright and early in order to set up for what turned out to be an amazing event! The Kilally Valley Community Group was a wonderful partner and not only promoted the event to their group, but came out to help give away trees as well!

On Saturday, May 27th, ReForest London held two Tree Depots in two different neighbourhoods. It was a beautiful sunny morning when we set up at Springbank Park - joggers and soccer players were out in full force soaking up the sun

Saturday, June 3rd, marked the busiest tree-giveaway day of the spring for ReForest London! We held Tree Depots at Gathering on the Green, and the London Food Incubator (in partnership with the Village Table/Meals on Wheels), and a Tree Blitz at West Park Church in Hyde Park.

On Friday evening, June 8th, ReForest London staff and volunteers set up a mini Tree Depot at the Victoria Public School Fun Fair. We gave away all 50 trees that we brought with us!

Our last Tree Depot of the season was held Wednesday, June 21st at the ReForest London Office. Our goal was to find homes in the ground for all the young trees before the heat of summer kicked in. We gave away 232 trees fairly quickly! Everyone was eager to plant their trees as soon as they could.

On Wednesday, June 14th, ReForest London set up a Tree Depot at Stoneybrook Public School. The Tree Depot took place during Stoneybrook’s fun fair. The students loved asking our volunteers questions about the trees and were especially excited to convince their parents to let them take home and plant a fruit tree.

On a Wednesday afternoon, May 24th, at the Kinsmen Recreation Centre, ReForest London staff and volunteers set up a mini Tree Depot, where we gave away 91 trees. Many people on their way home from work or visiting the Recreation Centre were overjoyed to find out about this pop-up event.

On Sunday, May 28th, ReForest London was busy with tree giveaways and held both a Tree Depot at the Mary Immaculate Parish and a Blitz in the Huron Heights neighbourhood.

On Sunday June 4th, ReForest London held a Blitz South of Sarnia Road. People from 37 different households received a tree, and a lot of people passing through Chesham Heights Park, to get exercise and walk their dogs, were happy to learn they could take a tree home with them.

Saturday, June 17th, ReForest London set up the final spring 2017 Tree Blitz at the Boyle Community Centre in Old East Village. Many families were at the Community Centre to watch their kids play soccer, and they received the added bonus of a tree to take home with them! We gave away 121 trees to 62 different households.

On the weekend of June 10th and June 11th, ReForest London held back-to-back Blitzes. On Saturday, the Blackfriars neighbourhood was filled with volunteers going door-to-door with wagons filled with a variety of trees to give away for free.

London sure loves getting free trees and thanks to National Forest Week and National Tree Day 2017, 3170 seedlings and trees found new homes on September 27. 

The last weekend of the fall event season had the Neighbourhood ReLeaf team buzzing, and the community seemed just as excited!

Crisp fall air, smiles, baby trees, and squishy new friends; all the things that made the End of Season Tree Depot a great one!

The Neighbourhood ReLeaf team was out on Saturday to bring trees to the North of Old East Village neighbourhood at their second last Tree Blitz of the fall season.

For the last Tree Blitz of the season in the South of Fanshawe Neighbourhood, the weather forecast was ominous, but the NRL team was determined to make this last event a success.

It was a beautiful day on Western University campus to give away trees! 

Volunteers from Deloitte joined RFL staff Kaitlin and Brad for a fun-filled planting at Southwinds Park! Thank you Deloitte for your hard work planting this baby forest! This project was made possible thanks to funding from the Government of Canada's EcoAction Program and TD Friends of the Environment Foundation.

ReForest London was joined by volunteers from the community, KPMG, ACO London and Saunders Key Club for a tough, hillside planting of 205 native trees and shrubs. 

Thank you to ON150 Community Celebration Program, City of London, KPMG and ACO London for supporting this project! 

We had a group of brave volunteers come out on this rainy Sunday afternoon to plant 125 native trees and shrubs at Jalna South Park! This includes 38 new shade trees that went in along the path. Thank you so much to ON150 Community Celebration Program, Canada Bread and the City of London for supporting this project! We couldn't have done it without you.

It was another sunny Saturday for the Carling near Highbury Tree Blitz!

We were honoured to be part of the Emancipation Day celebration at Westminster Ponds, and have the opportunity to give out free trees at a Tree Depot during the event.

It was a beautiful, sunny Saturday to start off Neighbourhood ReLeaf’s fall season with a Tree Blitz in Kipps Lane West!
