Ecology Ottawa has 700 free saplings available for pickup to re-build Ottawa's tree canopy.
The Rotary Club of Ottawa-Stittsville will again partner with Ecology Ottawa to give away native tree saplings at WJ Bell Rotary Peace Park on Wednesday, September 14, 2022 from 4:30pm-7:30pm.  Over 700 trees will be available for pickup, part of Ecology Ottawa goal to distribute 20,000 trees in Ottawa this year. 
Ecology Ottawa’s Tree Giveaway program helps the community address a diversity of important environmental issues, including mitigating climate change, rebuilding our tree canopy, providing habitat for wildlife, creating shade for residents, and improving air, soil, and water quality in the city.
There is no limit on the number of trees per person, but the intent of the program is to re-establish an urban tree canopy - not for planting on large rural properties. For more information check this website:;
