What We Do

The Calgary Tree Planting team is looking for a new director to take over the running of the organization and the website. Email if you’re interested. Or sign up and we will notify you when we’re holding our next tree planting event. Note that we only have 1 or 2 events per year at the moment.

The tree team is NOT able to plan an event for your large group of volunteers. Please reach out to the city of Calgary Service Education – City of Calgary Parks & Open Spaces group. They have events tree planting events for volunteer groups in the Spring and Fall and may be able to accommodate.

Want to stop Climate Change? Plant trees! At the moment, our biggest problem — climate change — could be ended by simply planting trees. Okay, so the world needs 1 trillion trees. But how hard is that, really? 

In July, Ethiopia alone planted more than 350 million trees in 12 hours. Their reforestation campaign aimed to plant 4 billion trees by the end of Oct 2019. In 2017, India set the world record when around 1.5 million volunteers planted 66 million in 12 hours. Canada has an approximate 302,700 square miles (784,000 square km) to plant more trees. Alberta has so much space with very little trees growing.
