ReLeaf is Back for Spring 2017! Deadline is May 15th!
The ReLeaf Tree Planting Program provides Winnipeg homeowners like you
with quality, affordable trees for your property. For just $55 each,
you’ll receive the tree collection(s) of your choice, along with all
the supplies you need to give your new trees a healthy start. Your
trees will be waiting for you at our tree planting workshops at the
end of May. At the workshop, you’ll get tips on how to plant and care
for your trees in the long term. Once your new trees are planted,
we’ll come for a quick visit to survey your trees – this helps us
determine if the Winnipeg Releaf Program is successful and helps
us improve the program for next year.
The trees, mulch, rabbit guards, tree care resources, and workshop
is a $150 value, but we’re excited to offer you this service at a
reduced price of $55! We encourage you to take advantage of this
special opportunity and reserve your ReLeaf tree collection today –
supplies are limited and won’t last long! See the 2017 tree packages
on our downloadable order form!
The Winnipeg Releaf Program is a collaborative project between Trees
Winnipeg and the
City of Winnipeg.
Recently, Winnipeg has been losing about 5000 elms per year because
of Dutch elm disease. Also, new urban forest threats like emerald
ash borer, gypsy moth, and Asian longhorn beetle have the potential
to destroy thousands of trees if they reach Manitoba. Planting new
trees in our own yards is a significant step in preserving our green
urban canopy for the future.
How Does Releaf Work? Joining ReLeaf is Easy!
Choose your favorite tree collection(s) from the
order form. You’re welcome to purchase as many as you like so
long as all selected trees are planted on your property (make
sure you have enough space!).
Fill out your contact information and send your sign-up form
and payment information to Trees Winnipeg—the deadline is May 15th!
Once your sign-up form and payment is received, Trees Winnipeg
will call or email you an invitation to choose your preferred
tree planting workshop session. Workshops will begin on May 27th
and run for about a week.
While at your tree planting workshop, you’ll learn everything
you need to know about how to plant and care for your trees
from Trees Winnipeg’s qualified staff. After the workshop,
you get to take your tree package home and start planting!
After the workshops, Trees Winnipeg staff will visit a randomly-selected
list of properties to survey your new trees—this helps us
determine if our Releaf program is successful and how we
can improve for next year.
