Root for Trees Program - City of Edmonton
The 2018 Root for Trees season has officially opened for booking your tree planting events! Our planting season will begin May 15, 2018, and continue until mid-October. Root for Trees events run Tuesdays to Saturdays and events will proceed rain or shine, so please ensure your dress for the weather!
Root for Trees is an enhanced tree planting program which works to preserve and expand our urban forest through partnerships with community groups, corporations, and individual residents. Edmontonians are invited to sign up and participate in tree planting events, in which they will be provided with all the materials required for an exciting day in nature! The program's annual target of planting 45,000 native trees, shrubs, and wildflowers aims to achieve the overall goal of doubling the size of Edmonton's urban forest!
