Tree Giveaways

London, we know you love getting FREE TREES! They make your property worth more, give us cleaner air, cooling shade, less stress, food, habitat for wildlife, and beauty. Simply put, trees are amazing, and they make our Forest City a better place to live, work and play.

In Fall 2020, ReForest London, Convertus, and the City of London gave away over 2000 free trees to Londoners to plant on their private property.   

 

About Our Program

ReForest London has launched a city-wide initiative to provide free trees for residents of London. Through the power of volunteer passion, one-on-one conversations, and getting our hands dirty planting, we have planted and given away over 18,000 trees.

Neighbourhood Tree Depots offer free trees to residents at various locations throughout the city. Over the long term we hope that the residential trees will create a healthy tree canopy and more green infrastructure in London.

40% of the land in London is controlled by individual residential land owners. ReForest London is working to get more trees onto private residential property and you can help by taking a tree and planting it!We want Londoners from all of our diverse communities to take action in creating a more sustainable city through the planting of trees. We will offer free trees to any Londoner who wants to plant one in their yard, plus opportunities to plant in a public park. 

All trees planted as part of the Neighbourhood ReLeaf Program will count towards London's Million Tree Challenge. If you have planted any trees since 2011, please take the time to register them at milliontrees.ca and be counted! 

 

If you have any questions about the program, email Brianne Curry, Director of Programs or call 519-936-9548 ex.226 to find out more.
