Man planting a tree in a garden

Norfolk County Tree Planting Program offers free trees to homeowners in Norfolk County. Trees are planted within the County-owned road allowance of your property.  Norfolk County strives to maintain the treed character along our roadways, and to preserve and enhance tree canopy cover throughout the County.


Program Guidelines:

  • One (1) tree is permitted per residential lot on the road allowance
  • Up to two (2) trees are permitted on a corner lot (one tree on each road frontage)
  • Trees will not be planted in boulevards where grass width is less than 1.5m

Norfolk County Forestry Staff will conduct a site visit to determine the suitability of the planting site, utility restrictions, sight line clearance, drainage, and available species selections. Tree planting will take place in the spring or fall, depending on tree availability. Applicants will be selected based on the suitability of planting sites for the species available and on a first-come, first-served basis.
