Tree Planting Challenge

Want cleaner air, increased natural beauty and more local wildlife in and around Markham?

Tree Canada is on a mission to crowdfund the greening of five urban spaces across Canada with more than 4,000 trees and the Milne Dam Conservation Park in Markham is one of those five spaces!

You can be part of the solution.

Greening Our Communities

Our Tree Planting Challenge kicked off on Earth Day, April 22, 2018.

By making a donation to plant urban trees with us on National Tree Day (September 26, 2018), together we can green Markham.

Come plant trees with us in our community.

Planting Site:


Milne Dam Conservation Park

43°51’42.9516″N 79°16’41.1179″W

8251 McCowan Rd, Markham, ON

Ecological benefit:

Previously an agricultural field, this reclaimed site is being restored to native woodland. The planting of up to 500 trees is a significant contribution as we provide a new habitat for local wildlife and increase the urban canopy of the location. Please help us transform this landscape.


500 trees

Let’s create a greener Canada!

Greener urban areas benefit wildlife and the environment, but they also benefit people too. 80% of Canadians live in urban areas so let’s make the places where we work, play and live greener and more beautiful!

Our Tree Planting Challenge is an opportunity for our communities to come together and plant over 4,000 trees in five parks across Canada from Montreal, QCSt. John’s, NLMarkham, ONWinnipeg, MB to Coquitlam, BC.
