Coverage of reforestation since November 7, 2023.

In forestry, true impact means more than just planting seeds

"...As a professional forester with 13 years of experience in the field, I have designed and implemented various ecosystem-based projects and restored critical habitats across Western Canada. I have seen firsthand the tremendous benefits that come from holistic restoration where foresters build and execute a plan. This includes decompacting soils while building micro-habitats for future tree seedlings to reach water and nutrients, controlling highly-competitive vegetation such as grasses or noxious weeds that limit or preclude tree seedling survival, and strategically placing diverse species suitable for the region and changing climate..."
