Greening Canada’s School Grounds

It’s time to revitalize Canada’s school grounds by planting trees! Trees provide shade and protection from solar radiation, and add beauty to the playgrounds and fields where our children play and learn.

Schools can apply anytime, as we are in touch with sponsors all over Canada. Applications are accepted year-round, and we’ll keep your request on file for two years.

To apply, start to complete the following “Steps to Greening Your School Grounds,” ensure the principal supports the project, and submit your application form.

Not only do they enhance the beauty, they are providing needed shade, creating habitat and many other environmental benefits. Your ongoing commitment to 'Growing better places to live' has made such a difference in our school yard and community." Principal, Hillsdale Public School
