Become One in A Million
The Million Tree Challenge (MTC) calls on all Winnipeggers to help plant a million new trees in Winnipeg by the time our city’s population reaches one million. Trees Winnipeg and the City of Winnipeg have been working together to inspire Winnipeggers to join their efforts in expanding our urban tree canopy. This program goes beyond the city's existing tree planting program to replace trees lost to insects, diseases, or environmental stress on public boulevards and parks.
Winnipeg’s tree canopy is in crisis — due to invasive insects and severe storms devastating our immense tree population. Trees provide many benefits, including improved air quality, reduced heating and cooling costs, increased property values, improved health and quality of life, and greener recreation areas. You can become one in a million by planting more trees, volunteering at tree planting events, and donating to support tree planting efforts in the city.
We encourage participants to plant trees on their property, especially native species, which are available at nurseries and garden centres across Winnipeg. View our MTC partners and suppliers. We also sell tree packages through our ReLeaf Program twice a year.
Every tree planted makes a difference. Make sure to register your trees so they are counted towards the challenge.
Help support tree-planting efforts in Winnipeg. Donations can be made to Tree Canada — simply select Winnipeg Million Tree Challenge in the Designation box.
As a volunteer for Trees Winnipeg, you can create new connections with fellow tree enthusiasts in your community and use your talents to give back to the community and promote our urban canopy.
