Tree Species List for Neighbourhood Depots

For the Neighbourhood ReLeaf Program we will be offering trees that are between 4 ft to 7 ft tall. The majority of trees are native species, but we will offer some edible species as well as some species from the United States (for assisted migration purposes).

Not all species will be available at all locations. We will have on average 10-15 species available at our Tree Depot locations. 

Residents are welcome to take 1-3 trees per household.
