ABOUT TD FORESTS
Launched in 2012, TD Forests is a major North American conservation initiative focused on protecting critical forest habitats and growing and enhancing urban forests. The Nature Conservancy of Canada has been engaged in TD Forests' work to help protect critical forest habitats in Canada. TD and NCC are also engaging more Canadians in the mission to conserve our forests, which will safeguard not just the trees, but all the living things that rely on forested habitats. For more information, visit TD Forests.
Over the last five years, TD Forests has invested $5 million to help conserve and care for some of Canada’s most important forest habitat through NCC.
The conservation projects accomplished in Canada under this program total more than 40,000 acres (16,000 hectares). The sites represent a diversity of forest types found right across the country, from coastal rainforest in British Columbia, to montane forests in Alberta, to Great Lakes-St. Lawrence forest in Ontario and Quebec and boreal forest on the Avalon Peninsula in Newfoundland & Labrador. These projects include examples of rare old growth forest habitat and important wildlife corridors. They protect 50 kilometres of rivers and streams and provide habitat for 63 species at risk including grizzly bear, cerulean warbler, spring salamander, limber pine and Kentucky coffee tree.
The Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) is the nation’s leading not-for-profit, private land conservation organization, working to protect our most important natural areas and the plants and animals they sustain.
Since 1962 NCC and its partners have helped to protect more than 2.7 million acres (1.1 million hectares), coast to coast. By investing in conservation we are ensuring that our natural world remains a home for wildlife, a haven for recreation and a vital resource that cleans the air we breathe and the water we drink. Through strong partnerships NCC works to safeguard our natural areas so that our children and grandchildren will have the chance to enjoy them.
