Through the Adopt-a-Park-Tree program, local communities work together with support from the City, Park People and LEAF to enhance the urban tree canopy and Toronto’s parks.
The program connects residents with newly planted park trees. Each young tree is adopted by an individual (or a group) who agrees to regularly water, weed and monitor their tree from May to October. The goal is to help new trees thrive in the first three to five years after planting while they establish strong root systems.
There are two ways to participate:
Option 1: Do-It-Yourself using the Adopt-a-Park-Tree Manual
Option 2: Collaborate with LEAF’s Young Urban Forest Leaders Program
For more information on both options, visit LEAF’s site here.
