Rotarians for Toronto's Historic Red Oak
Saving Toronto's Historic Red Oak
UPDATE: We are within $200,000 of our goal.
Donate now to help ensure this magnificent specimen thrives well into the future!
Due to its size, age, beauty and cultural significance, this magnificent 250-year-old oak is recognized as a heritage tree under Forests Ontario’s Heritage Tree Program. Following Council’s direction, the City has an agreement to purchase the property and establish the space as a parkette to preserve and showcase this beautiful example of our natural heritage. The completion of the sale is conditional upon the City fundraising $430,000 by December 12, 2020.
"Preserving this tree only makes sense. The question is not, 'Should we help this tree?'
but, 'If we don’t, what does that say about us as a city.'"
Mark Cullen, celebrated gardener, author and Order of Canada recipient
