Thanks for a Great Year!

Thank you London! With the help of nearly 4,000 volunteers in 27 projects across the city, we planted over 4,000 native trees and shrubs. This is a new record for ReForest London, and we thank our sponsors, volunteers, and suppliers for making 2011 our best year ever!

Some highlights from our busy year include:

  • April - A provincial-wide launch of the Urban Forest Stewardship Network, a collaborative of many urban forest organizations from around the province who are promoting tree care and steardship. A new website gathers inspiration stories.
  • May - The launch of the Celebration Forest, where we planted over 300 trees in honour and in memory of others. Over 200 family and friends attended a ceremony where we read the names of those being honoured and remembered, and planted the trees. Our Tree Gifts program continues, and we invite you to purchase a tree in honour or memory of someone today.
  • May - The launch of the Graham 10,000 Trees for Dingman, a new program to plant 10,000 native trees and shrubs in London's southern watershed. We completed 5 projects in the Dingman watershed this year. learn more
  • June - The launch of the Million Tree Challenge, an initiative with the City of London and many partners to inspire Londoners to plant a million trees in the next 10 years. Enter your 2011 trees and pledge to plant in 2012!
  • Ten schoolyard projects, creating Outdoor Classrooms in 10 schoolyards with the help of thousands of London students.
  • Thirteen Park and Natural Area projects, planting thousands of trees with the help of volunteers, community groups, and sponsor organizations, including our Lead Sponsor, London Life.
