About Forests Ontario

Vision & Mission

Making Ontario's forests greener

Forests Ontario is dedicated to making Ontario’s forests greener. Our ambitious tree planting initiatives, extensive education programs and decades of community outreach have resulted in millions of trees being planted each year.

Through our extensive partnerships and our diverse planting programs, we are working each day to increase forest cover, restore forests impacted by natural occurrences and improve forest conditions in Ontario and across Canada. But we’re always looking for more partners, landowners and donors to get involved.

In schools across the province, Forests Ontario’s forestry education programs are connecting students with their environment and potential futures in forestry. These leaders will help us grow smarter, healthier and greener forests, and sustainably manage Ontario’s most important natural resource for decades to come. Find out how you can bring forestry into your classroom, or learn more about programs and upcoming events. It’s the perfect opportunity to take learning outdoors.

As a non-profit registered charity, Forests Ontario is 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.

Our Vision Ontario’s forested landscapes sustain healthy people and a healthy economy.
