The Million Tree Challenge is a community-wide initiative to inspire Londoners to plant one million new trees across the city – in every corner and neighbourhood. ReForest London is proud to be a founding partner with the City of London of the Million Tree Challenge. As a community and a city, we need to work together to improve environmental and human health. Londoners, please register all the trees that you have planted on your property since January 2011.
Register a Tree
Be One in a Million! Join the challenge by registering your trees or sponsoring a tree to plant a leafy legacy. Each tree counts, and every tree matters!
Become a Sponsor
Ongoing sponsorship to the Million Tree Challenge provides the best way to ensure trees are continually planted in our community, but one-time donations are also pivotal to our success and the advancement of tree planting and green initiatives in London.
Sponsor A Tree
Sponsoring a tree is a great way to be part of the Million Tree Challenge and it does make a difference. Sponsoring a tree to be planted in a park is perfect for people who do not have land to plant trees on but still wish to help make London a greener, leafier place to call home. This is also a great option for small businesses who wish to sponsor trees on a smaller scale such as one for each service or product sold.
Every tree sponsored and planted has local impact and makes a difference to the quality of life in London. You can even see your donation come full circle and come out to a planting event to plant your sponsored trees. One tree at a time, your support is important to us and our environment. Please consider sponsoring a tree to be planted in one of our park naturalization projects in 2021. Individual donors receive a charitable tax receipt.
From small community events to large tree depots, businesses that sponsor anywhere from $1000-$50,000 will receive recognition on social media, the company name on the MTC website and much more depending on the level of your donation.
Please view our MTC Sponsorship Booklet for more information on how to become a sponsor and what you will receive as a sponsor.
Thank you Sponsors!
