What:  This year the Credit Hills Area will be planting about 4000 trees at the Dufferin Quarry in Acton.  Dufferin Aggregates has been a highly respected partner with Scoutrees and Scouting in this area for many years now. They provide the trees and the site so that a significant environmental project can take place that benefits both Scouting and Dufferin Aggregates. In addition to the positive results of tree planting, Scouting also uses this as a fundraiser.  Each Group keeps 85% of the funds raised, while 15% goes to the Canadian Scout Brotherhood Fund.  This will be the 44th  year that Scouting has planted trees in this area.

Crests:  Each participating youth will earn a 2016 Scoutrees Crest from their group.
