Tree planting is one of the most effective solutions we have to mitigate climate change. We work in the Canadian Maritime Provinces, within the traditional Indigenous region of Wabanakik, to transform deforested land into thriving forests ecosystems. We have planted more than 925,000 native trees and restored 1,615 acres of land. Within 10-15 years, newly restored forests begin to draw a significant amount of carbon out of the atmosphere, a process that increases as trees are allowed to mature.
We work predominantly in New Brunswick, where forests are being removed from the landscape faster than they can be replaced. In the last 25 years, 36% of New Brunswick forest has been cut, which is more than three times Canada’s average. To regrow these clear-cut forests for improved climate change resilience and mitigation, Community Forests International plants a diversity of climate-change resilient, native species on degraded lands. We develop long-term stewardship plans for the reforested lands and conduct outreach activities to increase public awareness of the need to restore forested landscapes.
Community Forests International plants trees that will be resilient in a changing climate and protects new forests from future harvesting.
