Tree Planting


Join us as we plant native trees and plants in parks and natural areas throughout Oakville. Planting trees is a fun way to get outdoors for families and individuals of all ages. Bring the family or come as a group and experience the pride in planting trees together to give our urban forest a boost!

Stay tuned for news of our Fall 2018 tree planting events!

You can view all of our events on our Events Calendar or receive updates by signing up for our e-newsletter.


Here are some tips to have a great tree planting experience:

  • Please be prompt – we’ll teach you how to plant trees at the beginning of the event.
  • Come dressed for the weather and working in the dirt. We plant rain or shine! If it is sunny don’t forget sunscreen or a brimmed hat.
  • Wear sturdy shoes – no sandals or flip-flops! We will have gloves on hand, but bring your favourite pair (labeled) if you like.
  • Bring water in a reusable bottle.
  • Bring a shovel (labeled) if you have one, but we have many to lend you if you don’t.
  • Secondary students can earn volunteer hours at our events. Don’t forget your forms!
  • Consider walking, cycling, carpooling, or taking the bus to our events. 
  • Watch our quick how to video and learn how to plant a tree!
