Tree Donation Program

Plant a tree in honour of a family member or to celebrate the birth of a new child, your graduating class or an anniversary. Plant a tree to acknowledge service club members, organizations or businesses. Plant a tree in memory of a departed family member or friend.

Whatever your reason, the tree that you choose will help ensure that Oak Bay remains ‘green’.
