LEAF offers two planting program options in the City of Toronto:

Full Service Backyard Tree Planting Program: this option provides homeowners with an easy and convenient way to get expert advice on beautifying their yards while simultaneously planting native trees and shrubs that are beneficial to the environment. Trees are planted in backyards only (or in fenced-in side yards).

For $150-$220 you receive:

  • 30 minute yard consultation with a LEAF arborist
  • 5-8 foot tall native deciduous tree OR 2-4 foot tall native evergreen tree
  • delivery and full planting service
  • mulch and planting/care guide
  • native shrubs also available for $30 each

 

Do-It-Yourself Planting Program:  this option provides the property personalized advice through a virtual consultation with a LEAF arborist. Participants watch a series of short educational videos and then book their virtual consultation. All that is needed is a telephone, computer and internet connection. Trees and shrubs are then delivered right to their door. This is a great option for those looking to plant a tree in their front or side yards, or for those who simply want to get their hands dirty and plant their own tree!

For $100 to $170 you receive:

  • online educational videos
  • 30 minute virtual consultation with a LEAF arborist to help you select the right species for the right location
  • 5-8 foot tall native deciduous tree OR 2-4 foot tall native evergreen tree
  • delivery (property owner plants)
  • mulch and planting/care guide
  • native shrubs available for $30 each and eastern white cedars available for $50 each
