Tree For Me is a community-powered backyard tree planting program.
Tree For Me is a community-based partnership that makes it easy for Toronto residents to get no-cost native trees for their backyards. Events are held across the city in support of the Every Tree Counts campaign to reach 40% tree cover in Toronto. Tree For Me events help put more trees in our yards, more trees in our communities, and more trees in our city. For more details, visit www.treeforme.ca
Tree For Me Facilitated Grants (up to $2000) are provided to charitable organizations and qualified donees by the Toronto Parks and Trees Foundation, with funding support from the City of Toronto. Through facilitated grants, the Foundation works with community groups across Toronto to host Tree For Me events to engage residents in tree planting on private land. Our goal is to increase Toronto's tree cover, with a special focus on Toronto’s least treed neighbourhoods.
The Tree For Me Facilitated Grant Program is perfect for charitable and non-profit organizations seeking to engage their neighbourhoods in community-building and environmental initiatives. We support dedicated community groups and organizations across the City because we know they are fantastic leaders and mobilizers. By applying, groups commit to to host a Tree For Me event and distribute at least 50 free trees to their friends and neighbours. In exchange, we provide access to dedicated funding, native trees, hands-on event support, and tree expertise.
