Scoutrees & Tree Planting

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

Each spring since 1972, thousands of Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts, Scouts, Venturer Scouts and Rover Scouts have planted trees through the Scoutrees Program.  Scoutrees gives all members the opportunity to demonstrate, through action, their concern for the environment. By planting trees, youth learn about the important role trees have in our lives, the critical need for conservation, the huge impact of climate change and how we can do our part to create a better world.



You can participate as a section or as a whole group. Everyone is welcome. Simply choose a location and register with the planting host as requested.


Groups will keep 100% of funds raised to support their Scoutrees planting projects and other Scouting adventures.  To ensure you have a successful Scoutrees fundraiser and tree planting event, it’s important to plan ahead of time. We have provided you with some helpful Step-by-Step suggestions.

STEP 1 - Decide where you are going to plant trees

o   Choose the planting location of your choice and register with the organization as described.

STEP 2 - Plan your fundraising efforts

o   Download a copy of the pledge form to collect pledges from family, friends or co-workers.

o   Canvass your local community by going door-to-door or run a community booth.

o   Donations of $20.00 or more can receive a charitable tax receipt. Matching dollars (cheques or cash) must accompany all tax receipt requests.  Please note that request for charitable tax receipts must be sent to the Central Ontario Service Centre on or before December 31st of the calendar year.

o   If you are interested in doing a booth or setting up a table at a local event or store, you can book Scouts Canada banners, tents, popcorn machines and marketing material from the local Scout office. 

o   Choose the planting location of your choice and register with the organization as described.


STEP 3 - Share Stories, Pictures Etc.

o   Please be sure to send us your stories or pictures from your Scoutrees planting events to help Scouts Canada grow our Scoutrees camapaign.  Please use the Online Report Form (see link below) to send us your report.

The annual 10,000 Trees for the Rouge tree planting will take place on Sunday, April 28, 2019.

Volunteers will be transported by free shuttle buses to and from the Unionville GO Station parking lot throughout the day.

Access to the site for those with BUS Transport ONLY, is through the Markham Works Yard on Princess Street, Markham – west off Markham Road (Hwy 48), north of Hwy 407.

Groups arriving with their own buses are welcome to drop off passengers at this Princess Street location, however, to avoid congstion, there will be an enforced “no parking/no standing” policy within drop-off area.  There will be space for private buses to park at the Unionville GO Station on the day of the planting.

Please check our website for specific details about the planting.

Scouts Canada, the country’s leading youth organization, offers challenging programs for boys, girls and youth age 5-26 in thousands of individual groups in most cities and towns across Canada.
