Old East Village Blitz – June 17

Project type: 
Neighbourhood Re-Leaf
Year: 
2017
Season: 
Spring

Saturday, June 17th, ReForest London set up the final spring 2017 Tree Blitz at the Boyle Community Centre in Old East Village. Many families were at the Community Centre to watch their kids play soccer, and they received the added bonus of a tree to take home with them! We gave away 121 trees to 62 different households.

Not surprisingly in Old East Village, most people came looking for trees that would be smaller when they matured. They weren’t disappointed! We always stock a variety of trees to meet everyone’s preferences: everything from a majestic oak to a shrubby serviceberry. And for those that aren’t sure exactly what they want, our volunteers and staff are always happy to help you choose! We have a tree for every type of soil, every level of shade or sun, and every level of soil moisture. If you want a shade tree, we have it; if you want a fruit tree, we have it; if you want a flowering tree, we have it; if you want a unique tree, we have it!  

Thank you to the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the Richard and Beryl Ivey Fund, a fund of London Community Foundation, Healthy Kids Community Challenge, and TreeMe (City of London) for supporting our Tree Blitzes.
