Projects

We held our last Tree Depot of the fall, and 2019, wrapping up a successful season and a beautiful fall.

We finished a planting event with a stewardship-minded group from Stoney Creek Baptist Church

We held our annual interfaith planting with 11 groups, which placed over 300 trees around Paul Haggis Pond.

We held our multicultural planting at Vauxhall Park, planting over 400 trees with hundreds of volunteers!

We planted 307 trees to start reconnecting forests around the Talbot Wetlands.

One thing we know for sure is that Londoners love trees and every year, during one particular week, it is evident for all to see! That special time is National Forest Week and if any community should embrace this celebration of trees, it’s the Forest City.

We planted along the ravine at Coves ESA to increase the forest cover, then tried our best to protect it all from the deer.

Our first public planting of the fall was a huge success!

We celebrated National Tree Day with four Tree Depot events in one day!

We planted with our sponsor Canada Life along the Veterans' Memorial Parkway.

For the second year in a row, Renewi Canada has shown their love of trees and community by hosting a Tree Depot at their head office on Dingman Drive.

We joined Longworth Retirement Community to offer fruit and nut trees to the community of London.

We joined the opening celebration of the new Fanshawe College South Campus on Friday, September 6th for our first Tree Depot of the fall.

We helped connect parks along the Fairmont Trail with student volunteers from Western Orientation Serves.

Thank you to all the community members who came out to our Tree Depot events and planted trees in their yards to help increase the amount of tree cover in London!

We had such a great day working with the team from LEADS to care for our baby trees and plant more than 40 new seedlings at Peppertree Park!

At the beginning of June, Citi Cards Canada and their families came out to help us care for our Celebration Forest and celebrate their 100th anniversary in Canada. Everyone had an amazing time and the trees look great!

Thank you to everyone who came out to help and to Citi Cards for all of your support over the years!

On Sunday June 16, a group of amazing Fanshawe students joined us at Enterprise SWM to help care for our baby trees! The site looks absolutely beautiful and we are so grateful for all of your hard work and enthusiasm!

“If everyone in London planted and registered two trees, we’d reach our goal of a million new trees for London!” remarked Mayor Ed Holder at the May 16, Million Tree Challenge celebration at Robinson Mitsubishi.

Grade 4 and 5 students at St. Kateri Catholic Elementary School participated in our Seeds to Forest program in 2019, learning all about trees and planting 21 new trees in their schoolyard!

The event had an incredible line up, and we sold out in just under 45 minutes! A big thank you to our Tree Specialist volunteers for bravely attending the first Tree Depot of 2019 and helping make the event run so smoothly! Thank you to the Bostwick YMCA for hosting us! And a BIG thank you to the City of London's Tree Me Tree Matching Fund for generously funding this event. We are excited for another busy year ahead!

Thank you to our amazing volunteers and everyone who waited so patiently in line. Thank you so much to the City of London`s Tree Me Tree Matching Fund and the WWF Go Wild Community Grant for funding this event. Keep an eye out for 3 more Wildlife Tree Depots this year.

Stoney Creek Baptist Church is certainly looking leafier after our planting event with over 60 hardworking volunteers!

We cannot believe that we planted 200 native trees and shrubs in just over an hour! Thank you to our amazing volunteers from Enbridge and the local neighbourhood!

Spring finally arrived! What an absolutely perfect day for planting with almost 70 eager volunteers!
