Tree Trust: Fighting the climate crisis, one tree at a time.
How does Tree Trust work?
Tree Trust preserves our biggest and best urban trees. We raise funds to hire arborists who keep the trees healthy and extend their lifespans through measures such as pruning, fertilizing and insect control. And because no tree lasts forever, we plant at least two saplings for every Tree Trust tree. Think of these saplings as understudies, growing into the role of the “elders.” Check out a full list of our Tree Trust Trees using the button below.
Six Chapters and growing
To date, there are six Tree Trust Chapters in Southern Ontario. We invite you to learn more about each one below. Don’t see your community listed? Wherever you choose to donate, your contribution will help preserve Ontario’s urban forest.
Legacy trees and carbon
There are officially sanctioned carbon offset credit programs. Our approach is simpler. Our donations stay local to fund the preservation of legacy trees and all the carbon they store. In fact, legacy trees can store up to 27 times more carbon in their trunk, branches, and roots than a newly planted tree.
We need your support, and below are three easy ways you can contribute. All donations are tax-deductible!
