The 2021 Root for Trees season is now complete. We worked with nearly 1500 volunteers this season, and planted just over 19,000 trees, shrubs, and wildflowers.

Thank you, Edmontonians, for helping to expand our urban forest! Please check back in the new year to learn more about the planting events planned for 2022, and when bookings will open again!
