Thank you to everyone who has planted and recorded their trees. With your support, we have made Ontario a greener place to live!
Welcome to the Green Leaf Challenge
The Ontario Government and Forests Ontario invited Ontarians to celebrate Ontario’s 150th birthday by taking part in the Green Leaf Challenge (GLC) and help us plant 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.
