TreeKeepers was a non-profit partnership between Tree City and the Environmental Youth Alliance to grow the urban forest. Since our funding was cut we can no longer support the TreeKeepers program. We have no trees to distribute and no courses available to train a new generation of Citizen Foresters.



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 online sales finished



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




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 are welcome for tasks from spreading the good news to helping at our public events.
