Help grow Surrey’s urban forest by planting trees and shrubs in your community park. Plants boost biodiversity, increase shade coverage, and provide habitat for animals.

Pre-registration required for all participants.

Register Online

Registration is slightly different for each type of tree planting:

  • Shade tree planting: Planters work close together to plant one large tree. One person registers for one tree and can bring up to 4 other people in their family or bubble. Each group will have 45 minutes to plant the tree.
  • Forest enhancement planting: Each participant must be registered individually. You will be spaced out and will have 45 minutes to plant several smaller trees or shrubs.

We provide all tools and training. Wear sturdy shoes and dress for the weather. Events run rain or shine, but could be cancelled in high winds.
