Check out LEAF Programs and Free Events!

LEAF (Local Enhancement & Appreciation of Forests) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the protection and enhancement of the urban forest. They offer subsidized programs that help you plant, care and give, and they offer lots of great (and free) events!

Current Programs:

LEAF offers a Subsidized Backyard Tree Planting Program which helps you get the right tree in the right place. For approximately $150 to $220 per tree you will get a site consultation in your yard with an arborist, a young native tree, and full planting service. LEAF also has a Do-It-Yourself option, for those who like to get their hands dirty! For more information, visit LEAF.

Shrub Bundles:

Planting a variety of native tree and shrub species can attract pollinators and songbirds to your yard by providing habitat and a food source. Trees and shrubs also add aesthetic value to your yard. Plant a LEAF Native Shrub Bundle today.

LEAF is excited to share with you their #BackyardBiodiversity campaign in partnership with Toronto Wildlife Centre. Through this partnership they hope to highlight the relationships between wildlife, people, and the urban forest, and interactively educate the public on how to make those relationships as healthy as possible. They publish blogs, share website content, and post on social media, all in conjunction with TWC.
