Ecology Ottawa is distributing tens of thousands of trees across the Ottawa region to replenish the urban canopy
Distributing trees is more than putting trees in the ground. It’s also about engaging residents and public organizations to help nurture a greener community, a greener Ottawa and a greener future together. Our tree distribution program is an all-inclusive, inter-generational, community-centered legacy to expand and care for Ottawa’s tree canopy.
To realize this legacy we will Protect, Plant & Promote!
- Protect Trees by sharing with Ottawans how to better care for and appreciate our existing tree canopy.
- Plant Trees by helping Ottawa residents properly plant trees and collaborate with like-minded citizens and organizations to reach our goal of planting tens of thousands of trees together.
- Promote Tree Habitat by identifying, protecting and connecting important ecological areas of the city and celebrating cherished trees in our community.
