 Living Green Barrie, with the help of the City of Barrie, Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority (LSRCA) and our generous sponsors and volunteers plant native trees and shrubs to increase Barrie’s forest canopy. Our goal is to plant 10,000 trees for Barrie and so far we have planted 5147 trees!

Tree planting is done in the spring and fall while the trees are “sleeping” to ensure a better chance of successful long term survival. The 2023 planting season has concluded and we are half way to our goal!

Check back in the spring for opportunities to support this important initiative, have fun and plant a tree!
