The LEAF Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Tree Planting Program helps you select the right trees and shrubs for your yard and is available to residents of Toronto, York Region and Ajax!
- Has the physical ability to plant and wants to get their hands dirty
- Wants to plant a tree in their front/side yard where LEAF does not plant
- Wants to save money
The DIY program ranges between $100 and $170 per tree and includes a virtual consultation with a LEAF arborist, five to eight foot tall native deciduous trees (or two to four foot tall native evergreen trees), mulch, a planting and care guide and delivery right to your door!
After your virtual consultation, we will send you a personalised yard plan and detailed information about the species of trees and shrubs that you purchased. You will also receive instructional videos on how to plant and care for your trees and shrubs – all you need is a shovel and a tarp!
