Voluntary Tree Planting Program on City’s Right-of-way


Free planting on the public right-of-way

In collaboration with the non-profit organization GRAME, the City of Dollard-des-Ormeaux is proud to offer you the opportunity to plant a tree  free of charge on the municipal right-of-way of your property. The city takes full responsibility for the maintenance of this tree.

An inspector must validate if it is possible to plant a tree in this location. If the space is adequate, we will offer you a choice of species taking into account the principle of “the right tree in the right place” and urban biodiversity. The location of the tree will then be marked and planting will take place a few weeks later.

However, this request does not replace the obligation to plant a tree after obtaining a felling certificate.

Let’s work together to make Dollard-des-Ormeaux greener by continuing to beautify our neighborhoods and improve our quality of life!

Program admission requirements

  • The space must be sufficient taking into account the presence of other trees or apparent obstacles.

  • The location must not conflict with road safety requirements, such as a sight triangle, or municipal maintenance requirements for snow removal.
