After Care at Nelson Park with ReForest London

Where: Nelson Park 142 Kipling Ave
When: Weds. July 22nd (6pm-8pm)

Keeping the Forest in the Forest City takes more than tree planting alone.  Caring for trees during their first few years is essential to the success of a naturalization project, and ReForest London needs your help!  Trees that have been planted over the past few years need to be weeded and mulched to give them the best chance of survival. Come out and learn how to identify and remove the worst weeds, add mulch to the trees to help them retain moisture and smother competitive grasses.

Please email specialprojects@reforestlondon.ca with any questions regarding the above Aftercare Events, and to confirm your attendance. Aftercare requires no volunteer training.

  • Bring a re-usable water bottle, sun protective clothing and suncreen

  • We encourage you to wear long pants with socks due to the chance of ticks
