About this Event
We could all use another tree in our yard, and the Bayview Village Association, along with The Rotary Club of Willowdale and The City of Toronto, is here to help. The Neighborhood Tree Giveaway Program, formally known as Tree for Me, is a community-led tree giveaway program in support of the City of Toronto’s goal of reaching a 40% tree canopy cover by 2050.
The Neighborhood Tree Giveaway Program offers residents anywhere in Toronto a free native tree that will contribute to the tree canopy in Toronto. The Bayview Village Association & the City of Toronto will work together to ensure that you receive a tree that is best suited for your desired planting space, provide a workshop on proper tree planting and tree care, and provide handy reference materials to care for your tree.
This year’s event was to be held on Saturday June 5th, 2021, from 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m. at Forest Grove United Church, located at 43 Forest Grove Drive. Due to Covid restrictions now, this event is re-schduled to June 19th. June 26th is our back-up date. Same location & time. Stay tuned for updates.
If you live anywhere in Toronto you can register for up to 2 free trees or shrubs. Registration is mandatory here on Eventbrite.
You must be a resident of Toronto (id will be checked). Multiple registrations from the same address will be cancelled. Masks are highly recommended for pick-up of trees.

- Please note species of the trees/shrubs are subject to availability.
- Residents will be limited to two trees (total) per address.
