More About the program
You have probably arrived at this website because a community group in your neighbourhood sent you here to help match you and your neighbours with no charge, backyard trees that will help enhance Toronto’s tree canopy cover.
Your local community group has received a grant to help them organize a Tree For Me event in your neighbourhood. This is where you will receive the tree that you sign up for online. At that event you will also take part in a workshop to help you properly plant and care for your new tree. You will also be invited to register your new tree at www.greenleafchallenge.ca to count your tree and here you will also see how your tree benefits our environment.
Each spring and fall, Toronto Parks and Trees Foundation and the City of Toronto provides community grants to eligible organizations so they can organize a Tree For Me in their Toronto neighbourhood. No charge, native trees are available to Torontonians who have permission to plant a tree on private land. Not-for-profit and charitable organizations may request up to 10 trees each season.
