A Gift That Grows

A $750 donation pays for the cost of purchasing and planting a tree


Wanted: 3,000 trees to revitalize the St. George campus. A gift to the tree donation program gives U of T the resources to replace and plant trees around the campus.

Since 1994, donors have arranged for about 200 trees to be planted on the St. George campus. Some trees were planted as a tribute to individuals who contributed to university life: the trees in front of Hart House honour past U of T presidents and chancellors. Other trees were planted to celebrate the 175th anniversary of U of T. Still others mark lives cut brutally short: on Philosopher’s Walk, 14 oaks commemorate the 14 women killed in the Montreal Massacre.

A minimum $750 donation pays for the cost of purchasing and planting a tree, and for maintaining it through fertilization, watering and pruning. You can either choose the species from a list of native trees, or choose in which designated area you would like a tree planted. For more information about the tree donation program, call (416) 978–5701 or visit the Web site www.giving.utoronto.ca/trees
