Residential Tree Planting Incentive Program

As part of the West Bolton SNAP Home Retrofit Program, Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) is piloting a Residential Tree Planting Incentive Program to help residents plant a tree on their property, add beauty to their yard and neighbourhood, and mitigate the local effects of climate change.

For the price of $100, only participating West Bolton residents will receive the following items and services valued at approximately $500:

  • A five-foot to eight-foot deciduous tree. Species details included in the tree guide
  • A 45-minute consultation with arborists from LEAF to help you choose the best location and tree species for your property
  • Utility locates to learn where your tree can be planted without disturbing buried utility lines
  • The delivery of your chosen tree to your property
  • Tree planting service by tree experts
  • Mulch and the first watering of your new tree
  • Personalized care instructions for your new tree

There are only 25 trees available through the pilot program this year. Trees are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis to participants of the West Bolton SNAP Home Retrofit Program. One tree per property. Only residents in the West Bolton SNAP neighbourhood are eligible. To confirm you live in the West Bolton SNAP area and are therefore eligible please view the map.
