Tree For Me @ TNO

This fall, TNO is very excited to be a host for the Tree For Me program, an initiative of the Toronto Parks and Trees Foundation (TPTF). Tree For Me connects Toronto residents to free trees that can be planted on their properties in an effort to help Toronto increase its tree canopy cover. Read more about Tree For Me here: https://www.treeforme.ca/.

Tree For Me is for anyone with outdoor (ex.front/backyard) space on their property to plant a tree or two.  Follow the steps below if you would like to participate in the Tree for Me program. Trees are small in size so that they can be easily transported by car or public transportation.
