Forests Ontario – 50 Million Tree Campaign
Forests Ontario’s 50 Million Tree Program is a tree planting program supported by the Government of Canada, corporate sponsors and donors. It provides property owners with financial and technical assistance to increase forest cover on their land for the benefit of the province.
Property owners that have worked with the program were able to increase the value of their land, improve the quality of their soil, increase wildlife habitat, enhance recreational opportunities, improve the health of their local environment and leave a lasting legacy.
The 50 Million Tree Program was inspired by global efforts to plant billions of trees worldwide each year. As of 2019, Forests Ontario has planted more than 29 million trees through the program, producing 16,000 hectares of new forest.
