In recognition of Canada’s 150th birthday, TD began the #TDCommonGround Project to help create a legacy of green spaces to bring people together. TD Tree Days is helping to create this legacy, as TD’s flagship volunteer and urban greening program that brings people together and provides the opportunity to help build healthy & vibrant communities.
Since the launch of TD Tree Days in 2010, over 285,000 native trees and shrubs in communities have been planted across Canada. This fall, the 300,000th tree will be planted, with thousands of volunteers coming together to further enhance over 150 green spaces. TD Tree Days is a program of TD Friends of the Environment Foundation (TD FEF), which provides funding to help sustain an incredible array of grassroots environmental programs across Canada.
Since 1990, TD FEF has supported over 25,000 projects with over $82 million in funding, from outdoor classrooms and environmental education programs to pollinator and community gardens. Over 80 local community organizations, including conservation authorities, municipalities and Indigenous communities support TD Tree Days with technical expertise, to ensure that the right tree is properly planted in the right place.
The LTVCA is excited to see everyone come together to create a lasting legacy in over 150 green spaces across Canada. For more information about TD Tree Days, TD Friends of the Environment Foundation and the TD Common Ground Project can be found here: https://www.tdtreedays.com/en-ca/pages/about
