 Planting Trees Today for a Healthier Tomorrow

 Volunteer    Request Trees   Donate

In 2004, The Green Legacyᴼᴹ was a simple idea to plant 150,000 trees to celebrate the County's 150 year anniversary. That idea has grown to over two million trees planted in the County of Wellington by community partners, making it the largest municipal tree planting programme in North America.

Did you know that many of our trees are grown from locally sourced seeds which are collected by Green Legacy staff and volunteers. Our volunteer opportunities are open for both groups and individuals. We look forward to growing trees with you! 

In 2022, Green Legacy is celebrating planting 3 million trees! Thank you to County residents for your continued support.
