- Buying real trees is a win-win, an opportunity to bring the beauty of Ontario’s forests into our homes for the holiday season and celebrate in a way that’s eco-friendly and supports the local economy
- Our forests are an incredible renewable resource, that when managed well, bring a host of social, economic, and environmental benefits
- More than 500 growers across the province grow more than 1 million trees to be purchased by Ontarians every year. New trees are planted in their place.
