Tree Planting Challenge

Want cleaner air, increased natural beauty and more local wildlife in and around St. John’s?

Tree Canada is on a mission to crowdfund the greening of five urban spaces across Canada with more than 4,000 trees and the Sugarloaf Path in St. John’s 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 St. John’s.

Come plant trees with us in our community.

Planting Site:


Sugarloaf Path

St.John’s, NL

Ecological benefit:

The East Coast Trail is an exposed section of coastal trail where we will plant 150 potted stock and 2,000 seedlings. These trees will provide a habitat and source of food for the resident song birds while minimizing soil erosion. When you support this project, you’ll contribute to the beautification of this stretch of coastline, providing enhanced views.

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.
