Help grow Surrey's urban forest by planting shrubs and trees in Surrey parks and along boulevards. We'll provide the plants, shovels, and instruction - you just have to bring your love for beautifying our City and enhancing the trees in Surrey!

Since 1991, volunteers have planted over 10,000 trees throughout Surrey. Thousands of volunteers have made an impact, including:

  • Community groups
  • Elementary and secondary schools
  • Local businesses
  • Individuals who care about their environment
