We help property owners in Whitby plant native trees and shrubs at a subsidized price.
We plant native species which are well-suited to our climatic conditions, require less maintenance than exotic species, and provide essential habitat for wildlife. Our focus is to help you get the right species in the right places with the right care so that the trees and shrubs survive and thrive. Roughly half the value of our services are covered by our funding partners, so you get top-notch programs at a more affordable price. Read on to discover what we can grow together!
