Support the Winnipeg Million Tree Challenge
Winnipeg Mayor Brian Bowman is planting a seed for a citywide challenge he hopes will root one million new trees.
The mayor’s goal is to connect corporations, community organizations and city residents in order to plant that many new saplings — in addition to the city’s replacement tree-planting program — before Winnipeg reaches the one million population milestone around 2035.
We are the leading national tree planting charity in Canada. We’re dedicated to improving the lives of Canadians by planting and nurturing trees while teaching about their value.
Tree Canada by the numbers:
82 + million
communities, schools and hospitals greened
communities restored following disasters
Urban Forest Conferences hosted
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.
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.
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.
