Hamilton Road Tree Blitz - October 1st 2016

Neighbourhood Re-Leaf
Year: 
2016
Season: 
Fall
Location: 
Southeast

On Saturday October 1st, ReForest London set up their tent in the Egerton Church parking lot to get ready for the days blitz and depot. The steady rain couldn’t keep the organizers from making this neighbourhood greener! ReForest London staff and volunteers set up a wide variety of native and fruit trees for residents to choose from.

The rain couldn’t keep the resident away either, as eager neighbours lined up before the event started to get their free trees. The amazing volunteers arrived ready for the day, and a special thank you to KPMG for sponsoring the event and bringing along a wonderful team. The volunteers departed with their wagons full of trees and big smiles on their faces. We couldn’t have been happier to give away over 170 trees!

We couldn’t have done it without the help of our truck volunteer Diederick, who works at Nathan Walker Construction, who delivered mulch and trees to teams out planting in the neighbourhood. Thank you to all of our volunteers for your help in making this day a success! Help releaf London by signing up to volunteer at some of our fall tree blitzes and depots – together we can make a difference!

Thank you to the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the Richard and Beryl Ivey, a fund within the London Community Foundation, TreeMe and the City of London  and KPMG for being lead funders on this project.
