By the end of this calendar year, the Highway of Heroes Tree Campaign will have planted 90,000 from Trenton to Toronto. We are well on our way to planting 2-million trees, one for every Canadian that volunteered during wartime including 117,000 that gave the ultimate sacrifice.
Thank you for your support!
When a member of Canada’s Armed Forces falls in combat, his or her final journey is along the Highway of Heroes from CFB Trenton to the Coroner’s Office in Toronto.
We are planting 2 million trees along the 401 Highway of Heroes, a tribute to the men and women who fought for Canada in our wars, and a living memorial to the 117,000 who sacrificed their lives for freedom.
Every Canadian can be a part of this historic tribute. Look at the names on the cenotaph in YOUR community. Help us to honour those from YOUR community and ensure their spirit lives on in a living tribute!
This holiday season you can give the gift of a Hero Tree to your loved ones. A $150 donation, plants a tree to honour a Canadian Hero. This price includes the cost of the tree, as well as the professional services that are required to install the tree along the highway.
Generally, we aim to plant trees that are 1.5 metres tall, as these are most likely to thrive. The cost also includes significant soil remediation because the ground is often heavily compacted and filled with sand and gravel as a result of decades of highway construction. We want to give newly planted trees every chance to survive, so a portion of your gift is dedicated to the maintenance of young trees.
Either online or in a note accompanying your cheque, you can dedicate your tree to a fallen soldier, or to whomever you wish (child, grandchild, loved one) by providing us with their name.
Certificates are included for gifts of $150 or more and will be sent to your attention. For gifts below $150, certificates may be purchased for an additional $15.
By the end of 2018, our campaign will have raised $3.5 million of our $10 million goal and planted nearly 100,000 trees towards our 2 million tree goal. All of this wouldn’t be possible without your support.
