Every year in late September, the Forest City celebrates National Tree Day. It falls on the Wednesday of National Forest Week and in London it has become a big part of the Million Tree Challenge’s focus. Londoners have even been known to wish each other “Happy National Tree Day!”

The London landscape just got a lot greener thanks to Renewi  Canada Limited who gave away 200 trees for people to plant in their yards!  Renewi, formerly Orgaworld, is also one of the Million Tree Challenge’s newest Bronze level sponsors and we thank them for being such amazing community supporters.

Old Oak Properties is a new Million Tree Challenge Silver Sponsor and official oak tree sponsor for ReForest London's 2018 planting season.

As this is the last weekend of October, we held the very last tree depots of the season - and for the year.

It was a tree-ly amazing weekend for tree depots with ReForest London!

ReForest London's Neighbourhood ReLeaf program has given away over 11,000 free trees over the past two years, and we want everyone in London, regardless of ability, to be able to reap the benefits of trees.

That's why we created an Online Reservation opportunity, where residents were able to select trees online, which were then delivered or planted by our mighty team of volunteers!

On Sunday, June 10th, ReForest London set up a Tree Depot at the Hyde Park RONA. We had a great morning, and gave away most of the trees that we brought to the event!

On a sunny evening, ReForest London set up a Tree Depot at the Oakridge Superstore. We gave away 188 trees to Londoners, who will now have trees that will provide much needed shade throughout the spring and summer!

On Saturday, June 9th, ReForest set up a Tree Depot outside the Lambeth United Church. With nearly 200 trees, we were ready to find home for all of the trees at the event.

On a bright Sunday morning, ReForest London set up a Tree Depot outside CF Masonville Place with nearly 250 trees! A line began forming an hour before the event start time, and we were eager to begin giving away trees.

On Saturday, June 2nd, ReForest London staff and volunteers set up a Tree Depot at Gathering on the Green in Wortley Village. We brought 222 trees to give away, and we were happy to see the interest that members of the community demonstrated for picking up trees to plant at their homes!

ReForest London formed a team at this year's Forest City Road Races to raise funds for trees in the Forest City. We were joined by a team from Libro, and past RFL Board members generously donated to a matched fund, all to make this a success.

Local real estate agent Marla Marnoch recently became a Partner in London’s Million Tree Challenge and added helping London’s environment to her portfolio of the social enterprise real estate business she runs called Earmark.ca. ReForest London is now a “change-maker” in this unique win-win-win way to donate money to community initiatives.

On a beautiful Sunday morning, we set up a Tree Depot at the Stoney Creek Community Centre/YMCA, in partnership with the Stoney Creek Neighbourhood Committee. We had a fantastic morning, with huge support and turnout from the public!
