What is Trees for Tots?

Trees for Tots is a tree collection service in Guelph, the Township of Puslinch, and the Village of Rockwood. For a suggested minimum donation of $15, you can register your tree to be collected by one of our volunteers. Trees are collected, chipped, and returned to nature through walking trails, and other community projects.

Trees for Tots collection will take place on Saturday, January 13th, 2024. 

 Register Your Tree

Trees for Tots Registration is open until Tuesday, January 9th, 2024.

Tax receipts are issued for $10 less than the full amount paid,
as there is a $10 service fee associated with the tree collection. Example: A $30 donation will receive a $20 tax receipt.
