Students at Tecumseh Public School planted ten large trees on their school grounds as part of the school’s naturalization project. The tree planting is a continuation of a naturalization begun last year, when trees, shrubs, grasses, and perennial flowers were planted.

The school has registered their new trees with the United Nations Billion Tree Campaign 2007, a campaign that calls on people around the world to plant one billion trees this year.

The mandate of the Naturalization Project is:

  • to nurture each child’s role as a future caretaker of our Mother Earth.
  • to teach our children the three components of ecological literacy: connection, dependence and impact
  • to provide a safe, beautiful environment where our children can play, create, imagine and dream

The project is a partnership between the City of London , ReForest London and the Tecumseh Home and School Association.

All the students were involved in the tree planting.

It was a wet day, but the students participated with enthusiasm.

Holes measuring 20 inches deep were required.

A sense of pride comes from planting a tree
