LEAF's Do-It-Yourself Planting Program is available to residents of northern York Region (East Gwillimbury, Georgina, King Township, Whitchurch-Stouffville). This program is supported by York Region and Ontario Power Generation.
Through the completion of an online workshop, LEAF will help you select the right tree for your yard and plant it strategically to beautify your yard and conserve energy.
Please note that LEAF will plant a maximum of five trees per household in York Region (subject to space availability and arborist's discretion).
If your property is larger than than 2 acres (0.8 hectares) and you are planning a larger naturalization/restoration project, you should visit the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority or Toronto and Region Conservation to find out about larger scale planting programs.
