Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $3,500 to Canadian educational institutions to enhance school grounds through tree planting projects across the country. The purpose of the program is to improve learning for students and help them build a stronger connection with nature via the medium of school greening projects.

Studies suggest that students with access to green spaces have an enhanced learning experience and improved outcomes in science, math and language arts. As well, access to green space in a student’s learning environment is associated with improved mental well-being and overall health. By supporting school greening projects, Tree Canada enhances the learning experience for students and strengthen their relationship with nature. 

Funding is available to eligible projects to cover the cost of purchasing and planting trees and shrubs, site preparation, tree maintenance, planting materials, and developing education materials.
