Ten Millionth Tree Planted On Earth Day

(TORONTO, ON) – Ontario celebrated Earth Day by planting the ten-millionth tree under its 50 Million Tree Program, which is helping fight climate change and grow a greener province.

The program represents a pledge the Province made in 2007 to plant 50 million trees as part of the United Nations’ Billion Tree Campaign.

Trees planted under the program are helping to clean the air and fight climate change by removing about 6.6 million tonnes of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere by 2050, which is the equivalent of taking 1.1 million cars off the road for an entire year.
