Cutblock Party

Plant a Tree at the cutBLOCK Party to Celebrate the Mission Municipal Forest

The City of Mission will be hosting a free community tree planting event in the Mission Municipal Forest to celebrate its 65th year managing Tree Farm License #26.

This will be a fantastic family-friendly event and a great way to get out into the majestic municipal forest with family and friends.

Each spring the City of Mission plants approximately 80,000 trees as part of its annual silviculture and reforestation program. The seedlings planted are a climate-resistant mix of Douglas fir, western red cedar, and western white pine. Residents will be invited to plant a seedling to support our future forest and take one home to plant.

Other activities include:

  • Scavenger hunts and forest crafts
  • Educational display tables
  • Opening ceremony and cake-cutting
  • New City of Mission brand introduction
  • Axe throwing
  • Community tables
  • Hot chocolate and coffee
  • And more!

The event will happen rain or shine. Please wear weather-appropriate clothing and footwear. Dogs are permitted on leashes.

A limited number of small shovels will be available to share. Feel free to bring your own if you have one at home.
