Forestry is New Brunswick’s largest industry, contributing to over $1.45 billion to the local economy annually. Unfortunately, while providing stable jobs and wealth to the region, extensive logging has caused the forests to become degraded and fragmented.
The forests of New Brunswick, now in a degraded state and fragmentation is affecting forests’ ability to support biodiversity and provide ecosystem services. The older trees, which were once powerful carbon sinks, are now lost or becoming increasingly threatened.
With your support, we will be regenerating a former commercial logging site in New Brunswick, Canada. For this project, we will be planting over sixteen distinct native species, including Red Spruce, Oak, Birch, Sugar Maple, Butter Nut, and more. The goal of this project is to reverse land degradation in the area. A diverse range of species will be planted to revitalize habitat, increase biodiversity, and restore these forests as effective carbon sinks.
