This was our longest running Tree Depot event of the season, totaling 8 days long with 183 hours covered by 39 volunteers. While having some great conversations around our local forests and environmental health, we gave out 50 young trees and a whopping 627 seedlings! It was great to see so many people interested in improving the health and well-being of the Forest City!

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.
