Gift Trees In Canada
Why plant trees in Canada?
Canada's forests are the most vulnerable in the world to climate change. These forests support countless species and ecosystems and are among the many examples of at-risk habitat.
- Because of warmer temperatures, the mountain pine beetle has survived harsh winters in the mountains of British Columbia, attacking more than 43 million acres of forest and killing millions of trees.
- The MacKenzie River region, which supports one of the world's last major wild rivers, has warmed by 3.1° F (1.7° C) over the past century, endangering the long-term stability of much of the permafrost.
