A subsidy to plant trees on public property!

The City of Beaconsfield will once again take part in the Ensemble on Verdit residential greening campaign. 

With the expertise of the non-profit organization GRAME, we are making the purchasing and planting process easier than ever by offering a competitively priced turnkey service which includes:

  • A tree of your choice among the species available
  • Delivery and planting with mulch and nutrients
  • Tips for taking care of your tree
  • A one-year warranty

After selecting your tree location and species, all that’s left for you to do is care for your tree following the planting by GRAME.

Beaconsfield's climate action plan found that one of our principal vulnerabilities to climate change is the loss of our mature urban forest. The goal of this new subsidy is to help you take action in your own backyard to fight the effects of climate change. Your choice to plant trees will allow us to slow the thinning of the canopy, and to maintain its numerous benefits for our community.

Interested parties can select and buy their trees directly on the website ensembleonverdit.org.

New additional tree
75% of $285
Net cost for residents: $71.25 taxes included.
Replacement of an authorized tree felling
25% of $285
Net cost for residents: $213.75 taxes included

If you must fell a tree, place your tree order as soon as your felling request is approved.

Attention: Trees purchased in 2024 must be planted during the 2024 season. Please ensure that you have the necessary information to complete the process quickly after your purchase.

Where can I order my tree? 

Tree ordering and planting is done entirely through GRAME. Trees are not ordered through the City. To place your order and get more information, visit ensembleonverdit.org.

Ensemble on verdit, a GRAME initiative, is a residential greening campaign that allows citizens to plant or replace a tree on their property, all at a competitive price! For more information, visit ensembleonverdit.org, or contact the GRAME at ensembleonverdit@grame.org.

Free tree planting on public property

Do you want to contribute even more to increase our resilience to climate change at no cost to you? As part of the annual planting program on public property, the City is offering residents the opportunity to have a tree planted free of charge in front of their property, on the portion of land that belongs to the City.

There is no charge for this service, and all maintenance for these trees planted on public property will be provided by the City.

As quantities are limited, we urge you to send your request as soon as possible by email to arbres_trees@beaconsfield.ca.

Following your request, a city inspector will go on site to provide you with a list of tree species adapted to your property, and to help you choose the best location for your tree. The City reserves the right to modify your choice according to space requirements or the availability of trees. Planting of these trees by the City will take place in the fall.
