Trees for 3 Dots Planting Inc.

Mission  

Community Tree Planting Made Easy. Trees for 3 Dots Planting Inc. will help broad-based community groups develop their neighbourhoods through tree planting projects.

Organizational Objectives

There are many great ideas to enhance the environment and improve communities through tree planting.   However there are many technical details that go into a successful implementation of a tree planting project that can seem overwhelming to a group of well-meaning volunteers. Trees for 3 Dots Planting Inc. (T43D) will assist with those technical details allowing the group to focus on the goals of the project and to rally the support of the community.  T43D’s team of experts will help with:

  • Project design and implementation planning
  • Obtaining permits and ensuring compliance with applicable regulations
  • Fund-raising, especially contacts with foundations, government grants, and corporate sponsors
  • Administrative support including reporting requirements to funding agencies
  • Material acquisition both of trees and planting materials
  • Equipment and tools
  • Access to a base of professional and community volunteers
  • Volunteer training in highly successful tree planting techniques
  • Planting Day event management
  • Development of an After-Care and Tree monitoring program
