How trees are planted and how it helps

The tree planting process is not as simple as it may sound. It takes time, science and cooperation between various organizations and stakeholders. There are many considerations to keep in mind such as ensuring the right kind of trees are planted in the right areas, potential natural disturbances and pests, and the overall purpose of trees in a given area, whether for restoration, increased biodiversity or simply creating a beautiful space. Planting trees is a powerful nature-based solution that benefits Canadian ecosystems and Canadians alike.
