50 million tree program

The Ontario government's 50 million Tree Program works with landowners to finance and plan tree planting.

The benefits of trees on your property include providing wild life habitat, better air quality and protection of soil erosion from wind and water,

Kawartha Lakes Field advisor and forester Glenn McLeod says the program provides funding among other things.

McLeod adds it's important for landowners to get in touch with Forests Ontario now to work on a plan for spring planting.
