Four Easy Steps To a Backyard Tree!


We offer our Full Service Backyard Tree Planting Program to all residents of Ajax. The price you pay ranges from about $150 to $220 per tree. This price includes a site consultation in your yard with an arborist, a five to eight foot tall tree (two to four feet for evergreens), delivery and planting.  The full value of the service is about $300 to $400 and the difference is paid by our funding partners.  The program is supported by the Town of Ajax, Durham Region, Toronto and Region Conservation and Ontario Power Generation.

Please note that LEAF will plant a maximum of five trees per household in Ajax (subject to space availability and arborist's discretion). 

Native shrubs are also available for $30 each and eastern white cedars are available for $50 each. These prices include mulch and delivery for orders of four or more shrubs/cedars (for fewer than four shrubs/cedars, a delivery fee of $25 per order applies). Shrubs are one to two feet in height and cedars are two to four feet in height at the time of delivery. Planting service is available for an extra $25 per shrub/cedar. 

There are four easy steps to getting your new tree.  Please read through them carefully and complete our online questionnaire (found at the end of step four). We will then contact you to book a consultation with one of our arborists.
