PLANT 1 MILLION TREES
Ottawa is blessed with an abundance of green space and rural communities. However, the Emerald Ash Borer Beetle continues to have a devastating impact on certain species of trees in our parks, forests and neigbourhoods.To meet this challenge, and as an important legacy contribution for future generations, the City has partnered with Tree Ottawa to help plant one million trees by 2017. Get involved by volunteering, donating or planting a tree of your very own.
