2014 – 2015 Annual Report
Over the past year, Forests Ontario has gained momentum, propelling itself into the spotlight to tackle important issues facing our forests. The time for action is up on us and, as the voice for Ontario’s forests, it is our responsibility to advocate for the health and abundance of our forests while speaking out against potential threats that compromise our vision for a healthy future .
As before, Forests Ontario’s efforts focus on our pillars for growth: Restoration, Stewardship, Education, and Awareness. We do this by offering a breadth of pro grams designed to promote and support our forests, bringing to the forefront their inherent value, along with the many benefits and services they provide . Continuing to grow and enhance our forests through our restoration programs remains a key priority of our organization. To date, the 50 Million Tree Program has planted nearly 17 million trees across the province, contributing to a healthy future by growing forest cover, increasing wildlife habitat and mitigating the effects of climate change.
Since the expansion of the 50 Million Tree Program into northern Ontario in 2014, we have grown pro gram capacity and expanded our network of planting delivery agents to satisfy the unique needs of northern landowners. Our national tree-planting program, Forest Recovery Canada, also took great strides in the past year, contributing to growing forest cover Canada-wide through plants across the country. Forests Ontario continues to remain accountable for each tree that we plant, tracking their success and long-term survival rates .
