Trees for Heroes

Trees for Life recently announced Trees for Heroes. Through this new program, the organization will continue to plant trees to honour many kinds of heroes in our lives and the people who make Canada one of the best places to live in the world.

“We are excited to announce the launch of our collaborative initiative, Trees for Health, which will see hundreds of thousands of trees planted in honour of our health workers over the next five to 10 years,” the organization wrote in a social media post. “[On September 20] we planted 155 trees at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre [in Toronto, Ont.] honouring frontline health workers who have bravely led us through the pandemic and who work tirelessly for our health and well-being.”

Tree for Heroes marks the continuation of the Highway of Heroes Living Tribute tradition of creating living legacies.

“Trees for Life is proud to plant trees that pay tribute to the heroes who make our communities and our country a better place for you and for all. These heroes include military, first responders, front-line and healthcare workers, neighbours, and loved ones,” the organization said.
