TD Tree Days hosts tree planting event at St. Thomas Elevated Park
St. Thomas – 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 across Canada have been planted. This fall, the 300,000th tree will be planted with thousands of volunteers coming together to further enhance over 150 green spaces.
One of the TD Tree Day sites selected is at the western approach of the St. Thomas Elevated Park and 300 trees will be planted by 70+ volunteers.
