We feel that as a Canadian corporation, it is our responsibility to give back to the world we live in and Tree Canada is the perfect partner to ensure this happens.
Tree Canada is a non-profit organization proudly dedicated to planting and nurturing trees. For over 25 years, they’ve engaged communities, governments, corporations and individuals in the pursuit of a greener and healthier living environment for Canadians.
Since 1992, they’ve planted more than 82 million trees, greened more than 660 schoolyards, helped restore places hit by natural disasters, and brought together urban forestry experts greening cities all across Canada.
The Rostie Group will be focusing its efforts on the National Greening Program 2020 Project at the Ontario site in the greater Sudbury area. This project is set out to support the restoration of areas in and around the municipality impacted by historic mining operations.
The program has restored areas for over 40 years and aims to continue planting a wide range of tree species and shrubs to afforest areas or increase species diversity.
With 82% of the population now living in urban areas, it’s important to recognize the many benefits that trees provide.
Trees reduce the effects of climate change, naturally cooling cities
- One large tree can provide a day’s oxygen for up to four people.
- A mature tree can lift nearly 400 litres of water out of the ground, helping to prevent flooding.
- Trees sequester CO2, other gases and particles.
Trees can help our economy
- Mature trees in a well-landscaped yard can boost home values.
- Shade from trees can help us feel up to 15°C cooler on hot summer days and reduce energy costs by 15% to 25%.
- Trees can improve the “shopping experience” and demand price.
Trees help us live longer, healthier lives.
- Exposure to trees helps reduce stress, speeds healing and improves mental health.
- A 10% increase in tree canopy can lead to a 12% decrease in neighbourhood crime.
