Tree Planting Events

Our Spring Plantings have a been a success!

Tree Planting - Group PhotoThank you to all those individuals who came out and helped us plant hundreds of trees over the past months throughout the Forest City! 

While our spring planting season has wrapped up, we will be back in the fall with new dates and locations!

Get to know your community, meet new people, enjoy the outdoors, and help make London healthier and greener by volunteering to plant trees. 

Tree Plantings

Volunteer to Plant Trees

No experience, training or volunteer registration is required to attend a tree planting event. We'll teach you how to plant a tree at the beginning of the event. Click here for more information about being a tree planter. View planting dates below.

Volunteer Groups If you are coming with a group of 10 more or more, please let us know so we can acknowledge your group at the planting.

Here are some tips to help you have a great volunteer experience:

  • Be prompt – we’ll teach you how to plant trees at the beginning of the event.
  • Wear sturdy shoes – no sandals or flip-flops please.
  • Wear clothing appropriate to the weather – we plant rain or shine! Don’t forget sunscreen.
  • Bring water – we’ll have a jug to refill your reusable bottle.
  • Bring a shovel if you have one, but we have many to lend you if you don’t.
  • High school students can earn volunteer hours at our events. Don’t forget your forms!
  • Consider walking, cycling, carpooling, or taking the bus to our events.
  • Some of our locations are tricky to find. Please look at our maps and watch for posted white signs directing you to the planting locations.
  • We do cancel plantings due to inclement weather, so please check day-of on Facebook and our website if you are unsure.
