503 trees planted in Alberta, Canada

503 trees planted in Alberta, Canada

If you purchased from us in the past 7 months either online or at Glastonbury our partners will be planting your trees where they are needed most right now, Alberta, Canada - to help restore trees lost in forest fires.

With your donations, our partner One Tree Planted will:

  •  Reforest lands damaged by record-setting fires
  • Support habitat for iconic biodiversity
  • Create a positive impact for generations to come

Year after year, forest fires grow in intensity as climate change continues to provide the perfect conditions for these fires to flourish. The good news is, reforestation can help restore these lands. Planting trees in Alberta is an effective method to revitalize the land and eventually return the area to a spruce-dominated mixed wood forest. Soil stability is an immediate ecological benefit of reforestation and the area provides enough light for a new forest to grow efficiently. 

As the forest regenerates, it will provide a critically important regional habitat (nesting, denning, foraging, and hunting) sensitive migratory songbirds, sensitive raptors and owls, sensitive amphibians, black bears, and ungulates. The trees are carefully planted to prevent invasive species from colonising burn scars.

One Tree Planted always plant a mix of diverse, native species from local nurseries. This project is working to replenish local forests, so the native species grown in the nurseries include black spruce, white spruce, tamarack, jack pine, red osier dogwood, balsam poplar, and mixed native willow species.

Thank you for your continued purchases, although small, they'll definitely still make a difference.
