Trees for Tomorrow increases Delta's green canopy while adding natural beauty to your home and neighbourhood. You choose the tree(s), we plant them where they will be safe and thrive, and you water them for three years until they are established.

What is Trees for Tomorrow?

Delta is committed to increasing the municipal tree canopy and taking action for positive environmental change. The Trees for Tomorrow program invites Delta homeowners to request one or two trees to be planted on municipal property immediately adjacent the side and front of their property. The homeowner chooses the tree(s), and as long as the chosen tree is a suitable fit for the property, Delta will purchase and plant it. Homeowners must commit to watering the new trees after planting; this is an essential part of the program's success.

What kinds of trees can be planted?

Delta has selected a variety of species eligible for this program. They were chosen based on four main attributes:

  • Will thrive in our climate
  • Easy maintenance
  • Provide maximum tree canopy
  • Good street trees
