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. We collaborate with academics and industry experts to grow our knowledge and strengthen urban planting guidelines.
And along with our community of supporters, we grow our capacity to fight climate change. Together with our partners and sponsors, we have planted more than 84 million trees.
