Tree Planting Relay
Municipalities Plant Trees in Honor of Earth Day
Initiated on the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, the Municipal Tree Planting Relay is the perfect way for cities to highlight their dedication to addressing climate change and to reiterate their commitment to sustainability.
On the 22nd of every month until Earth Day, cities across Canada will announce their pledge to plant at least 50 trees in honor of Earth Day. These municipalities, committed to taking action and making their regions greener, will then hand off the relay baton to other Canadian cities for the following month!
As they symbolically pass the baton across the country from month to month, these municipalities will demonstrate their commitment to the strengthening of biodiversity in our cities and plant an environmental stewardship legacy that will benefit Canadians for years to come!
Financial support for trees is available for municipalities if needed.
Planting relay registrations are closed for the 2023-2024 year. Thank you to all participating municipalities!
