2019 Tree Giveaway Events

This year Ecology Ottawa is distributing 12,000 native tree seedlings free of charge to Ottawa area residents in efforts to re-plant our urban tree canopy. We are doing this because Ottawa’s urban tree canopy is under threat. Since 2008, the emerald ash borer has killed 25% of Ottawa’s trees. In addition to this, climate change, invasive pests, expanding urbanization and infill construction are also major threats to trees. We need to re-plant and keep planting to stay on top of the threats!

At all of the events listed below, our team of dedicated volunteers and staff will be handing out tree seedlings on a first-come, first-serve basis, so check the list of events frequently for one near you:

  2. What kind of fruit trees do you have? I’m really looking for columnar fruit trees, and I wish pawpaws would survive in Ottawa.

    • Hi,
      We’ll give away Black Elderberry, Chokecherry, Highbush Cranberry, Nannyberrry and Red Oak. They should be ready by mid-June-July.

  3. How do you become eligible to receive a free tree. We have an 11 year old Maple that was seriously damaged over the winter ( bark was completely striped off) We will truly miss our beautiful tree, and all the wild life it brings into our neighbourhood. The shade it provides for the kids and the sound of the leaves that sing us to sleep. Please please please we need a tree!
