Street Tree request updated

The latest street tree requests for our project have been added to our Google map, illustrating five summers of work to get more trees where there are most needed in the city.

Thank you to everyone who contributed, and especially to our summer student project lead Chelsea Lowes who worked hard to get 30 more trees for the Homeside neighbourhood!

Remember, you can get a free tree for your front yard from the city of Hamilton's excellent Stree Tree Planting Program. Here's a link to their webpage: if you want to make a request directly to them.

Let's keep filling in our neighbourhoods with trees until everyone has equal access to the benefits of our air-cleaning, cooling, shade-producing, beauty-providing leafy friends.


  1. As someone who works in land management, I've seen firsthand the effects of land clearing on the environment. While land clearing can be necessary for certain purposes, it's important to approach it with caution and to consider the potential environmental impacts. Soil erosion, habitat loss, and carbon emissions are just some of the negative consequences of land clearing. That's why it's important to use sustainable land management practices and to consider alternatives such as reforestation or conservation. With responsible planning and execution, we can balance the need for development with the protection of our natural resources and wildlife habitats.
