Help Save Toronto’s Oldest Tree

Help Save Toronto’s Oldest Tree

An effort is underway to save Toronto’s oldest tree, the Heritage Oak on Coral Gable Drive in North York. 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 earlier this year, 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.

To make this project a success, we need an additional $220,000 in donations to save this beautiful tree, and a part of our heritage. The deadline is December 12, 2020, and you can donate at https://www.toronto.ca/business-economy/partnerships-sponsorships-donations/donate/heritage-red-oak-tree/. All donations over $20 qualify for a tax receipt.
