Welcome to the Green Leaf Challenge

The Ontario Government and Forests Ontario are inviting Ontarians to celebrate Ontario’s 150th birthday by taking part in the Green Leaf Challenge (GLC) and helping us to plant 3 million trees across the province.

You can take part in the GLC by adding your planted trees to our online counter, which will map and track the trees. You can also take part by joining Forests Ontario and our planting partners or through other planting initiatives in your community across the province.

Trees are among our province’s most powerful and enduring symbols.

At this community restoration work day we will be planting wetland plants in a newly constructed floodplain wetland near Bronte Creek.
