How It Works
Once a grant is awarded, Tree Canada experts work closely with communities to make each project an opportunity for residents to gather and celebrate the benefits of trees and urban green spaces.
Recipient communities can use the grant funding to contribute to various types of local planting projects, including:
- Growing their urban forests
- Transforming community spaces, including schools
- Traffic calming and safety
- Urban heat island reduction
- Park creation or restoration
- Adding to or improving naturalized areas
