Trees for Nipissing is a grassroots organization started in 2004, with the planting of two nurseries. Formerly known as Nipissing Botanical Gardens, we had our beginnings with Heritage Gardeners. Most of the trees and shrubs planted in 2004 were eventually installed in the Community Waterfront Park along Lake Nipissing and near Discovery North Bay Museum. Plantings have also been done at CFB North Bay, with Living Fit in the Grandchildren Planting Trees project and plantings along Chippewa and Parks Creeks with the Greater Nipissing Stewardship Council.

Board members include Hariett Madigan, Hal Falk and Peggy Walsh Craig. Advisory members are David Schroeder, Troy Storms and Adam Whyte.
