A Norland area forester has planted her 1,000,000th tree on a property near Norland in May.

Eleanor Reed has been a planting delivery agent for the 50 Million Tree Program since it began in 2008. The program is managed by Forests Ontario and was funded by the Province of Ontario until 2019 and will be funded by the federal government in 2020 – 2025, after the Province under the Conservative government cancelled the program.

Through the program, Reed planted trees for over 150 landowners in Kawartha Lakes and surrounding municipalities. She established nearly 1300 acres of forest. These young forests sequester significant amounts of carbon every year and help to mitigate the effects of climate change.
