TreeKeepers is a non-profit partnership between Tree City and the Environmental Youth Alliance working with the City of Vancouver to grow the urban forest.



Every TreeKeepers tree you plant becomes part of the urban forest which provides ecological, economic and cultural benefits. Do your part to help create the world's Greenest City by planting a TreeKeepers tree today!

Spring 2015 Available Now!



Tree love is shared by everyone but tree knowledge tends to be low. We train Citizen Foresters to help neighbours plant and tend trees and Students in the Youth Branch are inspired to become urban forest stewards of the future.

Tree Information



The best thing you can do to green your city is to plant a tree. The second best thing is to help others plant more trees. Volunteers for public events to trained Citizen Foresters are always welcome to join the fun.

How You Can Help

Every tree planted helps make Vancouver a greener city.
