Four Easy Steps To a Backyard Tree!


We offer our Full Service Backyard Tree Planting Program to residents of southern and central York Region (Markham, Vaughan, Richmond Hill, Aurora and Newmarket). 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, 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 York Region, the City of Markham's Trees for Tomorrow Program and Ontario Power Generation.

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

Native shrubs are also available for $25 each. This price includes mulch, and delivery for orders of three or more shrubs (for fewer than three shrubs, a delivery fee of $15 per order applies). Eastern white cedars are also available for $50 each, including mulch and delivery. 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 $20 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. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.


Please note

This Full Service program is offered for backyard plantings only.  If you are interested in planting a tree in your front or side yard, you can participate in the Do-It-Yourself version of our program, which is also available to residents of Northern York Region.
