WE HAVE A FREE TREE FOR YOU!
We are delighted to announce that the Long Branch Neighbourhood Association (LBNA) is once again able to offer free trees to our community.
This program supports the City of Toronto’s 40% tree canopy
cover target by encouraging tree planting and tree care on private property in Toronto.
You have a choice from 12 native tree species, suitable for all yards
Large Canopy Trees
- Eastern Hemlock
- Sugar Maple
- White Oak
Medium Sized Trees
- Bitternut hickory
- Northern Hackberry
- Red Maple
- White Birch
Small Trees and Shrubs
- Black Elderberry
- Silky Dogwood
Your tree will be distributed by volunteers from the LBNA on Sunday, September 20, 2020 from 12 – 2:45pm in Colonel Sam Smith Park. You will be required to drive up to pick up your trees to ensure physical distancing. Choose your preferred pickup time when you register for your tree(s).
Pre-registration is required. Don’t wait!! Quantities are limited. Please click on the registration link below now to pre-register on-line for your free trees (maximum 2 per household).
Virtual Info Session – Monday , September 14th from 6 – 7 pm
All are welcome to attend to learn about the Long Branch Tree Inventory Project and the different Native Tree Species being given away for free to increase the Biodiversity of our Urban Forest. Following a short presentation on the trees you will have an opportunity to get any questions you have about your tree selection answered.
Click here to join the on-line session at that time.
Seniors or people with disabilities who cannot drive to come pick up their trees or need assistance planting can request assistance at the time of registration. At this time we can offer this service to Long Branch residents only.
PLEASE NOTE: Because funding for this program comes from the City of Toronto, this program is limited to residents of Toronto and any trees ordered must be planted within the City of Toronto.
We all have a role to play in making Toronto greener.
Let’s get planting Long Branch!
If you have any questions, please email email@example.com.
Funding for this project is thanks to a Community Planting & Stewardship Grant from the City of Toronto.
