Northshore Tree Experts , a Barrie-based Landscape Ontario member, launched the “Free Tree Project” earlier this year, and plans on providing a one free tree to clients who have trees removed with a DBH of 30 cm. or greater.

“Northshore Tree Experts’ slogan is, ‘Deep roots grow a legacy’ because we started this tree service with a deep understanding of the importance of faith, family, and protecting our natural environment,” says Johnny Corner, company owner. “This is not just a way for us to realize the Canadian Dream, this business is an extension of our lives, which demands that it be guided with intentionality and purpose. And while our industry is known predominantly for the removal of trees, one of our purposes requires that we change that perspective through our business directives as a matter of conscience. For that reason, and due to the many benefits provided by urban trees, we decided to debut the Free Tree Project pilot program in our 2020 season.”
