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

People were eager to load up a wagon with a new tree or two from the selection of 15 local species.

Growing Deep Roots in the Community – Tree Blitz Launch, May 21, 2016

On May 21st, 2016, forty-nine volunteers gathered at Rick Hansen Public School for the first Neighbourhood Tree Blitz of the season as a part of ReForest London's new program, Neighbourhood ReLeaf. The goal?  To plant 16,000 new trees and distribute 19,000 seedlings in London over the next two years.

Not only was our first three days of Tree Blitzing a great success with 534 trees planted in the White Oaks area, it was also a success because of the unique moments shared between ReForest London volunteers and the community.

A collaboration between a Neighbourhood Tree Captain, a church and a school has led to 363 trees and shrubs being added to a central Argyle greenspace. Three naturalization projects, caliper tree and whip trail plantings and the creation of a new school outdoor reading area have made a big green difference.

ReForest London sold trees at a discount to residents in the Glen Cairn / Pond Mills area to be planted in their yards.

Students planted 5 trees and 19 shrubs in a new outdoor classroom.

Students planted 5 trees and 16 shrubs to create a new reading circle.

Students plant 5 trees and 24 shrubs to create a new outdoor classroom.

Students planted 5 trees and 18 shrubs to create a second reading circle in their schoolyard.

Youth from the Glen Cairn Community Resource Centre's leadership program planted trees in their neighbour's yards.

In this new ReForest London program, we are planting 1,000 trees in yards, along boulevards, in schoolyards, and in parks in the Glen Cairn neighbourhood. The project continues next spring.
