Canada to plant millions of trees annually to reach target

Share this story



The Canadian government announced in 2019 that it plans to plant two billion trees by 2030, but so far it is falling short of that promise. An access-to-information request by The Canadian press discovered that only about 8.5 million trees had been planted by last November. That’s less than half a per cent of the promise.
Natural Resources Minister Jonathan Wilkinson says that it takes time to ramp up the program and grow the necessary seedlings, and that the numbers will increase dramatically, to hundreds of millions of trees planted annually, in the coming years.
By 2027 and continuing for the following years, some 320 million trees will be planted every year creating thousands of new jobs.
To achieve that goal, the government has launched a call for proposals, including from municipalities and Indigenous communities.
