The trees we see growing in the urban and rural landscape, from backyards and campgrounds to forests and street corners, are more than symbols of our natural heritage. They also help to clean the air and reduce the impact of carbon emissions. Trees are half carbon, and absorb carbon from the air to survive. That means tree-planting is a natural and beautiful way to combat climate change.
Our Grow Clean Air program allows you to offset your carbon emissions, whether from a single event or the operations of an entire organization. Helping to counter climate change has been Tree Canada’s mandate since its establishment in 1992, and Grow Clean Air remains one of our biggest programs.
