Planting Trees in Manitoba

Cape Breton


The Wabanaki-Acadian Forest is one of the most ecologically diverse forest types in Canada, as well as one of the most endangered. With a moist climate and a historically very low risk of fire, it is ideal for storing carbon and a prime region for focusing climate change resilience efforts. The Acadian Forest is recognized by the World Wildlife Fund as “critically endangered,” the highest risk category for extinction. Less than 3 percent of the Acadian Forest remains in pre-colonial condition. Reforesting this site will promote wildlife connectivity, water retention, and Carbon storage. By planting a diversity of Native Acadian Forest tree species, we can help the site regenerate quicker and healthier than would be possible if left alone.
