Neighbourhood Tree Depots

   

_______________________________________________________________________

*  Sold Out  *

Thank you for your interest in planting trees! All of the available trees have been pre-ordered.

Keep your eyes peeled for an announcement about our End of Season Depot next week for one last opportunity to get trees from us this spring.

How will this Tree Depot work?

Due to the current restrictions in place, we have altered our regular Tree Depot format to ensure our staff and community members are able to safely participate.

To ensure the safety of everyone involved, we are doing things a bit differently this time. Here's what you need to know:

  • To get a tree, you MUST PRE-ORDER through our online form, below.
  • You must book a time slot to pick up your tree. 
  • Tree species must be selected online. 
  • Trees are only available for pickup during your appointment slot.
  • Delivery is not available.
  • Each household can take 1-2 trees.
  • Trees are for households in the City of London.

 

What kinds of trees will be available?

There will be a variety of species available, including native shade trees and some edible species. All available species will be listed on the order form.

Don't know what tree to pick? We've gone ahead and put together some resources to help you select the best tree for your property. Click here for more information. 

 

When do I have to order by?

Pickup appointments will be available from June 12th, 15th and 16th so order quickly before we run out! All orders must be submitted more than 12 hours in advance of pick-up time.

 

Do I have to pay for the tree?

Trees will be free by donation. All proceeds will go towards planting more trees in the Forest City! Donations can be made when you place your order or when you pick it up. Help us "pay it forward" and create a greener, leafier community - we appreciate your support!

About Our Program

ReForest London has launched a city-wide initiative to provide free trees for residents of London. Through the power of volunteer passion, one-on-one conversations, and getting our hands dirty planting, we have planted and given away over 18,000 trees.

Neighbourhood Tree Depots offer free trees to residents at various locations throughout the city. Over the long term, we hope that the residential trees will create a healthy tree canopy and more green infrastructure in London.

40% of the land in London is controlled by individual residential landowners. ReForest London is working to get more trees onto private residential property and you can help by taking a tree and planting it! We want Londoners from all of our diverse communities to take action in creating a more sustainable city through the planting of trees. We will offer free trees to any Londoner who wants to plant one in their yard, plus opportunities to plant in a public park. 

All trees planted as part of the Neighbourhood ReLeaf Program will count towards London's Million Tree Challenge. If you have planted any trees since 2011, please take the time to register them at milliontrees.ca and be counted!
