The Boreal Forest, Quebec, Canada
“Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world.” – John Muir
This Gift Tree Planting Project is in the Boreal Forest, Quebec, Canada. The majority of forest coverage in Québec comes from the Boreal forest – the world’s largest intact forest ecosystem – making Québec forests some of the most ecologically rich ecosystems on the planet. They are home to more than 225 species of bird, 50 species of tree, and 60 mammal species including moose, black bear, fox, and caribou. Since 2000, Quebec has lost almost 10% of its tree cover.
Your tree will help improve tree coverage in Quebec as urban sprawl, the timber industry, and resource development projects continue to threaten further deforestation across the province. The species of trees to be planted in your project are all conifers; black spruce, jack pine, balsam fir, white spruce, and larch. The project includes educating communities on forest management to ensure they will remain healthy for wildlife and last for generations to come.

Once connected to the map, feel free to zoom in and out to get a feel of the general planting
area as well as its location in Quebec, Canada, the United States, and the world. The link is best viewed on a
personal computer as opposed to a cell phone. Please understand that this is the general area of the tree planting. Your
tree would be planted among thousands of other gift trees and there is no plaque designating the gift
tree and visiting the tree is unfortunately not possible.

opening a new doorway to the world for future generations. If you have any questions, please
