The California government announces the planting of 10,000 trees in Deux Montagne
In the fight against climate change, Canada has an ally in our vast forests. Trees play a crucial role through their ability to sequester and store carbon and restore habitats and ecosystems. They can also reduce the risks of wildfires and floods while helping to restore areas affected by climate-related disasters. To maximize these benefits, Canada continues to meet its commitment to plant two billion trees.
The Government of Canada and the Regional District Municipality (RCM) of Deux-Montagnes, in collaboration with the Land Institute, have worked to adapt to climate change by planting trees and diversifying tree species in the region.
The Honorable Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Energy and Natural Resources of Canada, and Pierre Charron, Mayor of Saint-Eustache, today announced a joint investment of more than $250,000 to plant 10,000 trees at 24 public sites covering 9.5 hectares in order to strengthen community resilience to disasters. Effects of climate change and natural disturbances.
Different types of trees, such as red maple, white oak, treebark and tulip tree, will be planted in different municipal areas, some through migration assistance. Diverse forests provide many benefits: they enhance adaptation to climate change, enhance landscapes, create habitats for wildlife, and combat heat island effects by better regulating temperature in our cities and reducing the risk of wildfires and floods. Some of the tree species planted will help stop the spread of invasive alien plants.
Through the 2 Billion Trees program, the Government of Canada is helping improve air quality, keep neighborhoods cool in the summer, create jobs and combat climate change while protecting nature. The Government of Canada, in collaboration with provinces, territories, non-governmental organizations, local communities and Indigenous peoples, continues to build a healthy and promising future for generations to come.
