Join us at our annual summer aftercare events to keep London healthy and leafy.

Keeping the forest in the Forest City take more then just planting trees alone! Caring for trees during their first few years is essential to the success of a naturalization project, and ReForest London needs your help!

Our Tree Specialists will help you to identify the weeds that need to be removed around the trees, as well as identifying which grasses need to be covered in mulch around the trees so that they can retain moisture.

No experience, training or volunteer registration is required to attend an aftercare event. We'll teach you everything you need to know at the beginning of the event.

Click here for a detailed description of the Tree Aftercare Assistant role.

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

  • Be prompt – we’ll teach you eveything 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..
  • Secondary 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 aftercare due to inclement weather, so please check day-of on Facebook and our website if you are unsure.
