New Tree Plantings

This is a list of the saplings that have been planted in Trinity Bellwoods Park since 2006 when the Friends of Trinity Bellwoods Park's established their Adopt A Tree program.  Check out the Trinity Bellwoods Park - Adopt A Tree Program Map to see the location of the trees and their number.  If you're interested in adopting one of the "orphans" noted by the bright red volcano icon, contact adoptatree (at) trinitybellwoods dot ca or use the contact form and we'll set you up to join the volunteer AAT team.  (This list does not include the Memorial Trees which are not part of the AAT.)

2012 : 2 new mystery trees in May

These appeared near east of the playground.

1 x Red Oak (of some sort)
1 x Silver Maple (or Freeman Maple)

2011 : 46 new trees planted June 9th and 10th

Most of these trees are native to southern Ontario although not necessarily to Toronto (or any urban environment). The Ohio Buckeye for example is (according to the Guelph University Arboretum) found naturally in Canada only on Walpole Island in Lake St. Clair. The Goldenrain Tree is native to Eastern Asia, the American Sweet Gum, the Yellowwood, and the Plane Tree are native to North America but south of our region, and the Accolade Elm is a hybrid which has been found to be quite resistant to Dutch Elm disease.
