Planting for the Future

At Tree Canada, the word “growth” is at the heart of what we do. We plant trees, measure their growth and monitor for survivability. We help to grow Canada’s urban canopies in every province, while collaborating with academics and industry experts to grow our knowledge and strengthen urban planting guidelines.
