Residents can support our community by giving a "gift that grows" through the Township of Scugog's tree planting program. Your donation covers the cost of:

  • Purchasing a tree
  • Planting a tree
  • Maintaining a tree, such as fertilizing and pruning

The Gift that Grows program is a great way to get involved in the community. Started in the 1980s, the program now offers residents the option of donating a park bench.

How it works

Complete the application form and choose your donation gift. If you choose to donate a tree, our staff helps you choose a type of tree best suited for the location of your gift. Tree planting takes place in either spring or fall. The location of your gift depends on what it is and the landscape design of the chosen area.

Memorial gift

The Gift the Grows program is also a nice memorial gift to:

  • Honour a family member
  • Celebrate a new member to your family
  • Celebrate an anniversary
  • Honour your club, organizations, business or graduating class
  • Honour the memory of a departed loved one
