"The work that Tree Canada is doing to engage communities, governments and corporations to promote a greener and healthier living environment for Canadians, is so very important for environmental sustainability. It is staggering to think that your organization has planted more than 78 million trees across the country. Not only does this visually beautify our surroundings, but trees alter the environment in which we live by moderating climate, improving air quality, conserving water, and harbouring wildlife."

~ Mayor Kim Craig, Town of Coaldale

"Thank you for the trees for our playground. They give us shade when it is hot outside. We like the trees because they make our yard beautiful. The trees give us oxygen to help us breathe. We like them a lot!"

~ Grade 1 class, J.L. Jordan Catholic School, Brockville

~ Mayor Chris Piper, City of Armstrong
