Plant a Native Tree in your Yard
Brighten your community and your yard. Homeowners in eligible neighbourhoods can request a free tree or shrub that CVC’s home planting team will deliver and help plant.
Planting trees and shrubs on your property provides shade and privacy, adds beauty and colour, creates habitat for pollinators and birds and helps reduce the impacts of climate change. Plant more than one to add layers or create a grouping. Additional trees and shrubs are available for purchase at time of order.
2022 Orders are Closed
Our free tree and shrub giveaway is now closed. It will reopen in 2023. Check back to learn which neighbourhoods are eligible.
The giveaway is currently available to homeowners in the following neighbourhoods*:

Check to see if you live in one of these neighbourhoods using our home planting property look-up. Your property must fall within the blue or purple boundaries to be eligible for the giveaway.
