We offer our Do-It-Yourself Tree Planting Program to all residents of York Region (Aurora, East Gwillimbury, Georgina, King, Markham, Newmarket, Richmond Hill, Vaughan and Whitchurch-Stouffville). Through the completion of an online workshop and survey, LEAF will help you select the right tree for your yard so you can plant it strategically for beautification and to conserve energy. This program is supported by York Region and Ontario Power Generation.
The cost of the program ranges from about $100-$170 per tree, depending on the species chosen. This price includes a potted five to eight foot tall deciduous tree OR a potted two to four foot tall evergreen tree, mulch and delivery. Please note that not all of the tree species we offer through the Full Service Program are available through the Do-It-Yourself Program. Native shrubs are also available for $30 each and eastern white cedars area available for $50 each. This price includes a potted one to two foot tall shrub or a potted two to four foot tall cedar, mulch and delivery. A minimum of four shrubs/cedars must be ordered for free delivery, otherwise a $25 delivery fee applies. Please note that prices are per item and do not include applicable taxes.
During the spring season, deliveries will take place from April through June. In the fall, deliveries take place between September and November.
Please note that LEAF will deliver 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.
