Since 1995 Land Care Niagara (LCN) has been committed to creating a healthy and sustainable rural and urban environment, consisting of citizens who are knowledgeable and active in land resource management.
Land Care Niagara has been involved in the planting of over 1.2 million trees in the Region of Niagara. This represents about 575 hectares of forest restored to trees.
Once mature these 1.2 million trees will absorb enough CO2 over one year to equal the amount produced by driving a car 60 million kilometres. These same trees will produce enough oxygen for 26,000 people to breathe for a year.
