Since 2010, Tree Canada has partnered with the Government of Alberta’s Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry to fight this threat through our #OperationReLeaf Alberta Mountain Pine Beetle initiative.
We are offering grants ranging from $200 to more than $3000 to homeowners, private landowners and municipalities for the replacement of trees and the recovery of forests affected by mountain pine beetle on private or municipal lands in Alberta.
Who can apply?
This grant is open to Alberta residents, private landowners and municipalities who want to replace — or who already have replaced — trees affected by mountain pine beetle.
The minimum grant application amount is $200.
For any grant application over $3000, the applicant must demonstrate the following:
That trees and other planting materials comprise at least 50% of your requested funding.
That you are covering at least 25% of the total project costs. This includes in-kind contributions (time, labour, etc.)
