It was a beautiful, sunny Saturday to start off Neighbourhood ReLeaf’s fall season with a Tree Blitz in Kipps Lane West! 

What has delectable vegan muffins, Sea Shepherds, smiling faces and is leafy all over? The Coves Tree Depot!

A beautiful misty morning greeted the Neighbourhood ReLeaf team as they pulled up to the Longworth Retirement Home for their third Tree Depot event of the season!

The Neighbourhood ReLeaf team visited North Park Church for a very successful Tree Depot on this warm Saturday!

Fall weather has finally arrived for the Kipps Lane East Tree Blitz! 

ReForest London staff and Tree Canada representative Donald Craig were joined by 8 staff from the IKEA Canada London Pick-up and Order Point to plant 36 native trees and 20 native shrubs in around a pond in south London. 

This project was made possible by the generous support of Tree Canada and IKEA. Thank you! 

Almost 2000 trees were brought in to be given out to Londoners for National Tree Day at three major Tree Depots across the city.

Laughter, the sound of the Midway, the smell of fried food, and, best of all, free trees!

The Carling near Home Hardware Tree Blitz was a scorcher, but that didn’t stop our Neighbourhood ReLeaf team! 

We were joined by the public and some great groups to plant 250 native trees and shrubs adjacent to Kains Woods ESA!

Our Aftercare Coordinator Vic just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who helped with our summer Aftercare season this year! Thanks to all your help we had a record-breaking season!! We had over 500 volunteers join us at 28 events! 

London Life has been a strong supporter of a greener city since 2009 through their role as Lead Sponsor of ReForest London. We could not do what we do without this dedicated backing, and recently, ReForest London asked London Life to describe just how mutually beneficial this ongoing relationship is.

One of the most special events ReForest London hosts each year is the Celebration Forest Tree Planting Ceremony. Hundreds of people show up to this event to plant trees in memory or in celebration and to have the support from Partners for this event in particular is greatly appreciated. 

22 amazing volunteers joined Victoria at Westmount Lions Park on Saturday for Citi Cards Global Community Day. After two events at this site, the trees are looking much better and are all ready for summer!

Thank you to the City of London for providing mulch and funding for this project!

ReForest London staff Kaitlin, Brad, and Victoria were joined by 17 awesome volunteers to help plant 239 native trees and shrubs at Dingman Park. Although we didn't get all of the trees in the ground, the ones that were planted were planted with lots of love and the rest can go throughout the city to make London a leafier place!

Thank you to everyone who came out and to Great Lakes Guardian and the RBC Bluewater Project for funding this planting!
