Plant a Tree Program
What is it?
The Bob Beale Tree Plant Program is a joint initiative of the Canada Sports Friendship Exchange Programs and the Tree Canada Foundation. A tree plant scenario was created to inspire youth, parents, teachers and their communities to get involved with the evolution of our country and the cultural growth of its citizens. The project allows schools and youth organizations to raise funds while helping the environment and expanding their perspectives on national unity. Youth taking part in the program would enlist their friends and neighbors to sponsor a tree for $5.00 dollars.
This program gives youth the unique opportunity to raise funds for their own organizations and, at the same time, help two charitable organizations and the environment. The youth are then given the opportunity to be awarded participation in a cultural exchange, and become the proud holder of the TREE CANADA CUP for the year.
Who Plants the Trees?
Trees will be planted on your behalf by the TREE CANADA FOUNDATION (TCF), a not-for-profit charitable organization that plants trees, through working partnerships, in urban and rural Canada
How Important are Trees?
Trees supply oxygen, absorb carbon dioxide, odors, pollution, noise, dust, heat and reduces the greenhouse effect while providing a habitat for wildlife and beautifying our communities. This program provides an environmental opportunity for concerned, pollution conscious youth, parents and communities.
