Neighbourhood Tree Blitz

Our Tree Blitz program is currently inactive, however you can read about how 2017's program went by clicking here!

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. 

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!
