LEAF offers two planting program options in the City of Toronto:

Full Service Backyard Tree Planting Program: this option provides homeowners with an easy and convenient way to get expert advice on beautifying their yards while simultaneously planting native trees and shrubs that are beneficial to the environment. Trees are planted in backyards only (or in fenced-in side yards).

For $150-$220 you receive:

  • 30 minute yard consultation with an arborist
  • 5-8 foot tall native tree (2-4 foot evergreens)
  • delivery and full planting service
  • mulch and printed planting and care guide
  • native shrubs also available for $30 each

Do-It-Yourself Planting Program:  this option provides the participant with an online workshop and telephone or email correspondence rather than an in-person visit with a LEAF arborist. Participants then receive their trees and shrubs delivered right to their door. This is a great option for those looking to plant a tree in their front or side yards, or for those who simply want to get their hands dirty and plant their own tree!

For $100 to $150 you receive:

  • online workshop and videos
  • species recommendations by email
  • 5-8 foot tall native tree (2-4 foot evergreens)
  • delivery (property owner plants)
  • mulch and printed planting and care guide
  • native shrubs also available for $30 each

Please note: to request a tree planting on the municipally owned boulevard portion of your front yard, check out the City of Toronto's Free Street Tree Planting Program.
