Trees Please Hamilton

Green Solutions to Air Pollution

TREE TUESDAY – Free Trees for Canada 150

Leave a comment

In the spirit of Canada 150 we are giving away free trees to Hamilton residents! We’ve been strolling around the Crown Point Neighborhood delivering flyers (below) to spread the good news.

Often on these neighborhood walks we are reminded of the importance of our work. One Crown Point Resident was rather excited to hear about our free trees, tree inventory, and the air quality monitoring initiatives. She said that the City did not have enough air monitoring stations and that the air pollution is sometimes so bad that it makes her feel ill.

We chatted for a while about how our mobile air monitoring program is helping to fill in the gaps of the City stations’ measurements and how we are hoping to increase urban tree canopy since trees trap air pollution and carbon dioxide. We are particularly interested in giving away trees to neighborhoods around industrial areas for this reason. 

You can learn more about the work we do on this website and contact us ( to reserve your own free tree by September 8th.
