SCIENCE-BASED TREE PLANTING FOR A HEALTHY QUEBEC
WHAT IS TOMORROW’S FOREST?
The program Tomorrow’s Forest is an initiative presented by the Cowboys Fringants Foundation and operated by Earth Day Canada in collaboration with the David Suzuki Foundation and La Tribu. With the success of planting 375 000 trees in Greater Montreal, these four collaborators are committed to stepping up their game to the whole of Quebec. By developing a science-based approach to tree planting, they aim to improve the health and resilience of both Quebec’s forests and citizens.
The new tree planting program, officially launched in the spring of 2018, also accounts for trees planted under the previous major Earth Day planting program, Green Corridor, which ended in 2017.
The program Tomorrow’s Forest aims to carry out various projects with different kinds of actors: municipalities, businesses, institutions, and organizations. We want to be able to address specific issues by envisioning projects that are unique and adaptable. In other words, the team of Tomorrow’s Forest is there to transform its partners’ environmental objectives into concrete actions through projects tailored to their needs.
Tomorrow’s Forest brings people together, soliciting the involvement of many communities and artists from different fields. Two renowned collaborators have already announced their support for the project: the actor Louis-José Houde and the painter Martin Bureau. For every ticket that is sold for his current tour “Préfère novembre”, Louis-José Houde has committed to donate $1 to fund Tomorrow’s Forest.
