New Tribute Trees program will help kickstart planting projects throughout Hamilton watershed

Trees play an important role in our environment. Among other things, they provide shade and cooling, hold pollutants and carbon, and provide food and habitat for our birds and other species. Planting a tree is the easiest thing we can do to improve our quality of life now and for
future generations.

And now there’s a way for you to help us plant more trees, while recognizing someone.

The Hamilton Conservation Foundation’s Tribute Tree Program provides an opportunity to commemorate a special occasion or the life of a loved one. A donation of $125 to the Foundation’s Tribute Trees will be directed to our Planting Fund and will be used to plant native trees and shrubs where they’re needed most in the Hamilton Watershed.

A charitable receipt will be provided for your contribution.

In addition, the name of the individual or organization being honoured will be recognized on signage in the Beckett Forest in the Dundas Valley Conservation Area starting in summer 2019. An acknowledgement of your tribute will also be sent directly to the person or organization being recognized or to the family of the person being remembered.
