GRCA Tree Planting Program

The GRCA is always looking to increase forest cover on the landscape. GRCA staff are able to plan and co-ordinate large scale tree plantings, starting at 1 acre, and within the GRCA jurisdiction. Significant fund is available to offset the cost of tree planting. To talk to a GRCA staff person to find out how you can have tree planted please email stewardship@grca.on.ca.
