The Project

The forestry industry is the largest sector in New Brunswick, contributing more than $1.45 billion to the local economy every year. Despite providing stable employment and economic prosperity to the region, extensive logging has led to the degradation and fragmentation of the forests. As a result, the ability of the forests to support biodiversity and provide ecosystem services has been severely impacted. The older trees, which were once effective at absorbing carbon, have been lost or are at risk of becoming threatened.

To combat this issue, we are seeking your support to regenerate a former commercial logging site in New Brunswick, Canada. Our plan is to plant over sixteen distinct native species, such as Red Spruce, Oak, Birch, Sugar Maple, and Butter Nut, in order to reverse the land degradation in the area. Our goal is to revitalize the habitat, increase biodiversity, and restore the forests to their former state as effective carbon sinks.
