What is Reforest London? ReForest London is a non-profit organization dedicated to partnering with our community to enhance environmental and human health in the Forest City, through the benefits of trees.
ReForest London provides expertise and funding for groups to plant trees in their own neighbourhoods – this simple plan is proving effective because it taps into the energy and pride found in London’s neighbourhoods and businesses. ReForest London took root after it received a substantial grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation. It grew even more with financial support from London Community Foundation, TD Friends of the Environment and the Wetland Habitat Fund.
The mandate of ReForest London is to improve London’s environmental health by planting trees in the community – along streets, in backyards, in parks, and in natural areas. ReForest London Goals:
- Empowerment – Empower community groups, businesses, and individuals to plant and care for trees
- Ecosystem Health – Improve London’s environmental health through planting trees and shrubs in natural areas, parks, yards and along streets.
- Education – Educate Londoners about the importance of trees and how to plant and care for them.
Trees are an important part of our quality of life – environmentally, culturally and economically. With your help, ReForest London will leave a legacy of trees, an appreciation of the value of green-cover, and strong community partnerships for future generations. Website: www.reforestlondon.ca
