Reforesting Your Land
Forests Ontario's 50 Million Tree program is designed to significantly reduce landowner's costs of large-scale tree planting. We work alongside local tree planting agencies in Ontario, including regional Conservation Authorities and local stewardship councils to implement this program. Planting agencies work directly with landowners to determine site eligibility, allocate funding and coordinate planting. The landowner and site requirements are:
Wildlife Friendly Waterfront
How wildlife-friendly is your waterfront? Test your knowledge of waterfront conservation and learn about improvements you can make to protect wildlife on our shared landscape. This brochure contains stories from local landowners and practical information about natural debris, pesticides and insecticides, septic tanks, and more. Download the brochure here.

Climate change already is having significant impacts on the nation’s species and ecosystems, and these effects are projected to increase considerably over time. How should we prepare for and respond to the impacts of climate change on wildlife and their habitats? Download the National Wildlife Federation report here.
More Landowner Resources
We are working on compiling more resources to assist Canadian landowners in the A2A region with practical ideas, technical advice, and funding options, so we can work together in preserving the natural integrity of the land. These resources will include:
> Stewardship Agreements & Plans
> Managed Forest Tax Incentive Program
> Forest Certification
> Environmental Farm Plan
> Property Donations
If you would like to help this work progress, donate here. These resources will include both Canadian and American content. In the meantime, get in touch if you're a landowner looking for resources.
