ReForest London 2009 Summary

ReForest London had a great year. We completed 28 projects, planting 4,300 trees and shrubs with the help of 4,000 volunteers. We planted trees at 12 parks or natural areas, 10 schools, downtown, and various community locations. Almost every project brought a new partner for us, and we welcomed many new volunteers to the organization as well. Thank you to all who helped us reach our goals in 2009.

Another success this year was our first ever Amazing Tree Quest. This contest sought to identify London's most amazing trees through the online nominations of Londoners. With 10 categories for adults and children, the project drew funny, touching, and stories to help elevate Londoner's appreciation of our urban forest. The Celebrate the Trees event, where the Amazing Tree Quest prizes were awarded, brought together many of the people who love trees in our city.

We finished our Neighbourhood Re-Leaf: Glen Cairn project this year. We planted over 1,000 trees in this neighbourhood in 2008 and 2009 in yard, parks, and schoolyards, and the City planted another 100 boulevard trees. It was a successful pilot project, and we are seeking funding to go to another economically challenged neighbourhood in London to continue this work.
