The Neighborhood Tree Giveaway Program 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 Neighborhood Tree Giveaway Program and the Bayview Village Association 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.

You must be a resident of Toronto (id will be checked). Multiple registrations from the same address and/or more than 3 trees total will be cancelled.

About the trees

  • The City of Toronto and Connon Nurseries provide all trees. Our trees are native to Toronto’s seed zone (34) and are suited for our urban environment.
  • Trees come in 1-2 gallon buckets and are small enough to carry on TTC or sit in the back of a car.
  • Please note species of the trees/shrubs are subject to availability.
  • Residents will be limited to three trees (total) per address.
  • Registration closes May 26th at 11am.
