    Neighbourhood Tree Depots 2019

    Tree Depots are pop-up stations that offer free trees to anyone who is a resident of London. In spring and fall 2018, we hosted 26 Tree Depots in neighbourhoods across London.  We are excited to be offering another busy year of Tree Depots again in 2019.

    It is surprising to learn that 40% of the land in London is controlled by individual residential land owners. ReForest London is working to get more trees onto private residential property and you can help by taking a tree and planting it!

    At these events, we offer a variety of species available for selection, and staff and volunteers are always on hand to assist with your selection. Some of the species include; sugar maple, red maple, tulip tree, fruit trees, white oak etc

    Residents can take 1-3 trees per household, and must provide their address and email at the Tree Depot. Trees are by donation.

    Trees are between 3-7 feet tall and you can find the species list here. Tree selection will vary from depot to depot, on average between 10-15 species will be at each depot. 

    Have questions about our Tree Depots? Email releaf@reforestlondon.ca or call 519-936-9548 ex.225 to find out more.

    Volunteer to Plant Trees

    No experience, training or volunteer registration is required to attend a tree planting event. We'll teach you how to plant a tree at the beginning of the event. Click here for more information about being a tree planter. View planting dates below.

    Volunteer Groups If you are coming with a group of 10 more or more, please let us know so we can acknowledge your group at the planting.

    Here are some tips to help you have a great volunteer experience:

    • Be prompt – we’ll teach you how to plant trees at the beginning of the event.
    • Wear sturdy shoes  no sandals or flip-flops please.
    • Wear clothing appropriate to the weather – we plant rain or shine! Don’t forget sunscreen.
    • Bring water – we’ll have a jug to refill your reusable bottle.
    • Bring a shovel if you have one, but we have many to lend you if you don’t.
    • High school students can earn volunteer hours at our events. Don’t forget your forms!
    • Consider walking, cycling, carpooling, or taking the bus to our events.
    • Some of our locations are tricky to find – Please look at our maps and watch for posted white signs directing you to the planting locations.
    • We do cancel plantings due to inclement weather – so please check our website or Facebook page  on the day-of if you are unsure.
