Plant a Tree on your own Boulevard

Take Root Initiative
This new program is a collaboration between Trees For Guelph, Forest Ontario, and the City of Guelph.
It is a community-powered initiative, providing residents access to low- or no-cost native trees for their homes and neighbourhoods. Martin Litchfield (a retired professional forester, and current president of the Rotary Guelph South club) is the Trees For Guelph project coordinator, for local community engagement.
