Trees for Hamilton stems from the ReLeaf project which was co-lead by one of our Directors (Lorraine Moir). The project defined areas in Hamilton in need of trees. Taking up where ReLeaf left off, Trees for Hamilton is dedicated to planting trees in these identified areas.

A summary of what the ReLeaf project accomplished is available here.
