Both schools have environmental clubs, which aim to foster awareness of issues relating to sustainable environment, climate change and the important role of trees in contributing to climate preservation and economic growth.

This year's tree-planting ceremony took place at the Queen's College, Husbands location then it was later repeated at the Harrison College, Crumpton Street site.

This year, the Harrison College Queen’s College Alumni Network (HCQCAN), which comprises Queen’s College Association (QCA), Old Harrisonian Society (OHS), HCQCAA Toronto and HCQCAA USA, has partnered with the QCA to fund the tree-planting activity as part of the HCQCAN Improvement Campaign. The trees planted at the QC campus will provide reinforcement to the security fencing, with the added benefit of beautifying the grounds and providing shade for the students.
