Tree Canada is the only national non-profit organization dedicated to planting and nurturing trees in rural and urban environments.
Through their programs, research, and educational efforts, they have helped restore tree cover in areas hit by natural disasters, guided communities in managing their urban forests, helped green 660 schoolyards, and organized urban forest conferences.
To date, with the help of community partners like ourselves, they have planted more than 82 million trees.
Reforestation and Carbon Offsetting
Restoring our forests helps wildlife habitat and also helps fight climate change. Our reforestation and carbon offsetting efforts help make cleaner soil, cleaner waterways, and shorelines and also help sequester millions of tons of carbon pollution.
For more than 20 years, Tree Canada’s #OperationReLeaf initiatives have been helping communities recover from natural disasters and pests. From floods and forest fires to beetles and tornadoes, when Canada’s landscapes and cities face threats from the elements, Tree Canada is there to support the recovery process.
82% of Canadians live in urban communities and urban green spaces are an important part of what makes our cities liveable. Because Tree Canada believes firmly that the social, psychological, and economic benefits of Canada’s urban forests are worth preserving, we’ve dedicated ourselves to championing, stewarding, and expanding our urban forests for more than a quarter-century.
Engagement & Research
Tree Canada hosts the biggest network of urban forestry experts, academics, and practitioners in the country. Together, we are working to ensure our communities are green, vibrant, and liveable. Growing from the recommendations of the Canadian Urban Forest Strategy, our network and conferences bring together leading advocates for urban forests all across Canada.
