Projects - Neighbourhood Re-Leaf

On the weekend of June 16th and June 17th, ReForest London held two final Tree Depots for the spring season!

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 Wednesday, June 14th, ReForest London set up a Tree Depot at Stoneybrook Public School. The Tree Depot took place during Stoneybrook’s fun fair.
