In Canada we work many different partners to help reforest areas that have been hit by natural disasters such as wildfires.
Waiting to be planted
Our most recent Canadian project is Elephant Hill, which is a provincial park in Ashcroft, BC. Once abundant with Douglas Fir, Yellow Pine, Spruce and Larch trees, the 2017 wildfires burned roughly 192,00 hectares of land, and left only forests of blackened and charred trunks.
Reforesting areas affected by BC wildfires will help restore soil from erosion and burn scars. The damaged ecosystems will have a new chance of survival, and opportunities to thrive. Communities once displaced can rebuild their livelihoods and their futures.
