Dedicated to the protection and improvement of Toronto’s urban forests..

The activities of LEAF focus on residential tree planting within the boundaries of the new City of Toronto.

Staff and volunteers assist residents in one-on-one consultations in making educated decisions about the tree species that best suit their property and the location of the tree. Tree care information is provided to participants to ensure the best possible chance of long term surival. A recent study concluded that programs like this could significantly reduce energy demands: up to 40% for summer cooling and up to 10% for winter heating.

To date over 5000 native trees and shrubs have been planted in backyards throughout the City of Toronto. This program is an excellent model for other communities and environmental groups.
