After weeks of cooler weather and rain, the first Saturday of October was a surprisingly warm, sunny day – the perfect weather for a Neighbourhood Tree Giveaway with Convertus here in London!
This year’s event was the fourth year in a row that Convertus has sponsored and hosted a Tree Giveaway with ReForest London. All Londoners were invited to stop by the Convertus head office on Commissioners Road West to select up to two free trees to bring home with them to plant on their property.
The event was very well attended, with several Londoners even lining up in advance of the 11 o’clock event start time to secure their trees. There were many different species to choose from, from silver and sugar maples, to the crowd-pleasing tulip trees and pagoda dogwoods, to pin and black cherry trees, and much more. Over the course of the day, over 100 trees found their way to new homes.
The Convertus team were in full swing helping Londoners select the perfect trees and carry them out to their cars, including Convertus CEO Michael Leopold, pictured below.
“Convertus is thrilled to partner with ReForest London, as we share a common core value of creating a healthier, cleaner environment within the communities we live and operate in. Collectively, each small action builds toward a large impact, so every tree planted from our giveaway today will make a difference!”
- Annie, Business Development Director at Convertus
