Help Us Rebuild Toronto’s Tree Canopy
The City of Toronto has a goal of reaching a 40% tree canopy coverage by 2050. Toronto’s urban forest is a critical component of the city’s green infrastructure. Trees provide important environmental, ecological, physical and mental health, social, cultural and economic benefits and contribute to climate resiliency. They provide habitat for a wide range of birds, mammals and pollinators.
The 2018 Tree Canopy Study identified that the greatest amount of potential space to grow trees is on private land in Toronto.
You can help grow the tree canopy in Toronto by planting new trees on your private property, and our Tree for Free program is a great way to participate.
Because this program is funded by the City of Toronto, trees ordered under Tree for Free are to be planted on private property within the City of Toronto.
Pick up your Free Tree at Colonel Samuel Smith Park on Saturday, September 17th between 10 am and 12:30 pm.Individuals are limited to ordering two (2) trees.
To help you decide where and how to plant your free tree, here is a short video we produced that you might find helpful.
Here’s What is Available in 2022
We all have a role to play in making Toronto greener.
