About Forests Ontario

At Forests Ontario, we’re dedicated to making Ontario’s forests greener. Our ambitious tree planting initiatives, extensive education programs, and decades of community engagement have helped plant millions of  trees in the province each year—and it’s through these efforts that we’re bringing our vision for healthier forests to a new generation of stewards, partners, teachers, and donors.

As a non-profit registered charity, we’re always looking for volunteers, sponsors, and donors who will help keep our forests green—and help keep our programs running. You can donate today in minutes, help organize a local event, make forests part of your social corporate responsibility plans, or sign-up for one of our workshops or community days to learn more.

When you support us, you support the future of Ontario’s forests.
