British Columbia is known for its abundant forests, rugged Pacific coastline, mountains, plateaus, and pristine lakes and rivers. In recent years, visitors have noticed a difference in B.C.'s trees. Learn more
With your help, we will:
British Columbia is Canada’s most ecologically diverse province. It has the country’s only temperate desert, near Osoyoos in the far south, and North America’s wettest weather station, on the west coast of Vancouver Island. It has temperate rainforests, dry pine forests, boreal forests, alpine tundra, grasslands and more. More than 1,100 species of birds, fish, mammals, amphibians and reptiles live in B.C., some found nowhere else in Canada.
In summer 2017, British Columbia experienced the worst wildfire season in its history. It was unprecedented in the amount of land burned (over 1.2 million hectares), the total cost of fire suppression (over $568 million), and the number of people displaced (roughly 65,000 evacuated).
The fire season prompted a Provincial State of Emergency that was declared on July 7 and not rescinded until September 15, lasting 70 days. This was the longest Provincial State of Emergency in B.C's history. Recovering from such significant wildfire damage will take careful forest management. Your support can help get B.C's trees back to health again!
Help us prevent wildfires from spreading catastrophically. Young, healthy forests can help suppress future wildfires and reduce the impact of smoke on public health.
Biological threats like bark beetle, defoliating insects, and the Gypsy Moth can stunt tree growth and increase tree mortality rates. Planting young, well-spaced trees helps create more resilient forests.
Healthy forests provide habitat for an abundance of wildlife. British Columbia currently has more than 1,186 approved wildlife habitat areas, covering more than 1 million hectares.
