Neighbourhood Tree Blitz

You can plant a legacy of leafy trees in low tree canopy neighbourhoods, improving the health of residents, increasing property values, creating safer and more walkable streets. Help make London greener one tree at a time!

Urban trees are proven to increase local biodiversity and to reduce our environmental footprint by cooling and cleaning air and water. They also provide human benefits such as more desirable and active neighbourhoods. By focusing our most intensive efforts in low tree canopied areas, we increase social equality which is fundamental to stronger communities.

We need your help to get these trees into local neighbourhoods. Each season we will target a different neighbourhood that needs more trees, and we need strong volunteer support. On event dates, our volunteers go door-to-door with wagons full of trees to offer to residents. Please sign up today to be part of this exciting initiative

To volunteer, we ask that you take one training session to learn how to recommend tree species and how to properly plant a tree. Invite a friend! Sign up here.

The trees are between 4-7ft tall, and are a variety of species (see list here). Only homes that receive an advance notice will have a volunteer team visit.

We are also looking for volunteers to help us deliver advance notices to homeowner mailboxes 1-2 weeks before the Tree Blitz dates. Please sign up here to deliver advance notices!

As well, we really need folks with trucks or large vehicles to help us with logistics the during the day of the event. If you can help this way - please email  treeblitz@reforestlondon.ca  directly. 

All trees planted on the Tree Blitz days 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!
