Trees grow stronger together


Plant a mini forest! Otherwise known as Miyawaki urban forests. They are denser, grow faster, and support more biodiversity than conventionally planted forests.


We encourage you to get a diversity of seedlings and plant them densely and randomly.

Frequently Asked Questions

When and where do I pick-up the trees seedlings I've purchased?

  • In person pick-up days will take place between Thursday, September 3rd and Sunday, September 6th, 2020. 
  • Pick-up location is Kunstadt Sports' (Glebe) parking lot (680 Bank St, Ottawa, ON, K1S 3T9).

How big will the tree seedlings be when I pick them up?

  • They will be between 1 foot and 1 1/2 feet tall.

Will the pick-up days follow Ottawa Public Health's COVID recommendations?

  • Yes, safety is our top priority.

  • Hand sanitizer will be available.
  • Masks or face coverings are recommended.
  • Staff and volunteers will be wearing masks and regularly disinfecting surfaces.

Is it okay to plant tree seedlings this late in the year?

  • Yes! Many experts prefer planting trees and shrubs in the fall.
  • Fall planting is ideal because the combination of warm soil and cool air allows the roots to establish before the winter cold sets in.
  • While it is true that the first winter can be challenging for some seedlings, we will be providing you with instructions on how to properly plant and care for your tree.
  • We encourage you to purchase multiple seedlings if you are concerned about them surviving their first winter.

What do I need to know before planting?

Are these trees native to Eastern Ontario? Will they support pollinators?

  • Yes and yes! Native trees are critical for pollinators and can support a great diversity of species.

How else can I help trees in Ottawa?

  • Sign the Defend Ottawa's Trees petition to let City Hall know how important trees are to you.
