Forests Ontario commends province
for tree planting program funding
The Government of Ontario has pledged additional funding for the “50 Million Tree Program” through the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change’s Greenhouse Gas Reduction Account Initiative. This increased support allows Forests Ontario and its partners to continue to work toward healthy, abundant, and sustainably managed forests.

Forests Ontario commends the province for increasing funding for tree planting program. By providing additional financial support to the 50 Million Tree Program, the Ontario government is providing increased incentive for landowners to participate in the program.

Ontario’s 50 Million Tree Program offers landowners with 2.5 acres or more of open land to apply for funding support to cover a significant portion of the costs of planting trees to create new forests on their property. To date, more than 22 million trees have been planted through the program, establishing a legacy of clean air and water, enhanced biodiversity, and a more resilient ecosystem for all Ontarians.
