HELPING YOU BUILD A BETTER TREE CARE COMPANY

Annual OCAA Day of Service


Every year in the spring the OCAA organizes a Day of Service to mark Arborday, an international celebration of trees. Host sites are usually charities or not for profit organizations that have a significant collection of trees that they would otherwise be unable to afford to maintain. Member companies typically donate one or two crews and their associated equipment for the day while suppliers contribute materials such as fertilizer and rental equipment. The Day of Service provides an opportunity for companies to give back to the wider community while also gaining publicity. The day typically runs from 8am to 2pm, culminating with a meal supplied by the host organization where participating Arborists can relax, mingle and share war stories!

CENTRAL DAY OF SERVICE

Location: Parkwood Estate Historic Site

 270 Simcoe St N, Oshawa, ON L1G 4T5

Date:  Thursday May 2nd 2019 

COME BE APART OF OUR $1+ MILLION CHARITY EVENT 

YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS OUT!!

This year the OCAA is having our 23rd Annual Central Day of Service.  Last year we hit $1,000,000 in donated tree work to nonprofit organizations within our community and we want to keep up the great work!  

This year the Central Day of Service is being held on Thursday May 2, 2019 at Parkwood National Historic Site in Oshawa. Come out and help take care of a piece of National history, something you and your team can be truly proud of.

Our skilled teams will be completing a variety of arboriculture services including on some very old trees.



We Need Your Help!  This site has it everything except access!

A bunch of great climbing

Tons of mini skid steer work

Lots of Tracked Aerial Lift work

+ Cabling, Stump Grinding and Fertilization

There is also work for 1 bucket truck & chipper

2-3 additional chip trucks & chippers are needed for the other 3 access points to the property

This is a 102 year old, very well treed National Historic Site that is approximately 12 acres in size in downtown Oshawa.  Due to the established nature of the site combined with hardscaping, vehicle access to most of the trees is very difficult.  It is full of fun climbs in some very old trees.  Mini skid steers and tracked aerial lifts will play a key roll in completing the project due to its limited access. 

Sign up and join us as we give back to the community while having a great time. 

Let us know what how many workers and/or equipment you will be bringing. 

 

DON'T FORGET TO PROVIDE PROOF OF WSIB COVERAGE (OR EQUIVALENT AS ALLOWED) 

AND GENERAL LIABILITY INSURANCE COVERAGE. 

 

We invite vendors the media and arborist alike to partake in this incredible event that will truly make history.  Make sure you do something special this spring with your team show them new techniques new equipment and what our industry is really all about. 

Please stay tuned as we're going to be updating you over the next couple of months for this spectacular 2019 Day of Service.
