Care about trees in your local greenspace or woodland? Want to help your neighbours plant more trees? Become an Oakville TreeKeeper today!

The Oakville TreeKeepers program provides free trees, invasive species removal help, stewardship training, and fun community events to bring your neighbours together.

Join us! We are looking for our next crop of Oakville TreeKeepers! Oakville TreeKeepers carry out on-the-ground stewardship activities to improve the health of trees and woodlands in their neighbourhoods.

Launched in 2016, our Oakville TreeKeepers program has seen over 500 volunteers chip in to restore their local woodland patches and help their urban trees. Oakvillegreen has worked with TreeKeepers at 9 sites, including: Bronte Bluffs, Shell Park, Langtry Park, Glen Oak Trail, Munn’s Creek, Perkins Passage, Pelee Woods, the Parkway, and Lions Valley Park.

In 2018, we’re looking for TreeKeepers to continue work at these sites as well as some new stewardship locations. We will be focusing our summer efforts on tree care – mulching, monitoring and watering young trees that have been planted at these sites. We will also continue invasive species monitoring and removal. Visit our Events page to view and register for our upcoming stewardship activities or email info@oakvillegreen.org for more information.
