Sifton/Longworth Tree Depot - Sept 17

Project type: 
Neighbourhood Re-Leaf

Longworth tree depotA 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! It quickly warmed up as they were joined by volunteers, the Cranbrook Community Association, and the staff of Longworth, who set-up a snack table alongside the ReForest London tent. Neighbourhood residents started lining up early in excited anticipation of the start of the event, browsing the tree species as volunteers finished setting up signs and information leaflets.

With three experienced tree specialists and three new volunteers, 130 trees were planted in the surrounding neighbourhood, having a huge, leafy impact on the environment and the residents!  


Thanks also goes out to the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the Richard and Beryl Ivey Fund of the London Community Foundation, TreeMe, London Life and the City of London for being lead funders on this project.
