Ambioterra marks tree and forest month with tree giveaway

May is tree and forest month, and to celebrate, Ambioterra will be offering trees as part of its Mon arbre, ma forêt, mon avenir (My Tree, My Forest, My Future) campaign in collaboration with the municipality of Ormstown.

The distribution of trees will take place in Ormstown on Saturday, May 21, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the St. James Church (19 Church Street).  It will be possible to access the site via the Ormstown Town Hall parking lot (5 Gale Street) as well.

“Over the past decade, major forestry operations have taken place in the Montérégie, accelerating the loss of our forest cover,” explains Karel Ménard, the president of the Saint-Chrysostome-based non-profit organization.

Trees and forests are part of our natural defenses against climate change, as trees and forest soils can act as effective carbon sinks or reservoirs of atmospheric carbon dioxide. “In this context, it is just as important to reforest and restore trees in agricultural areas as it is to maintain our existing woodlands and forests,” says Monique Desnommée, who sits on the board of directors for Ambioterra.

As part of the campaign My tree, my forest, my future, Ambioterra has initiated a nursery project to help with area reforestation. Those planting trees this spring will also be contributing to this valuable process.

To learn more about our My Tree, My Forest, My Future campaign, contact Ambioterra by email at info@ambioterra.org, by phone at 450-637-8585, or online via their Facebook page or website at www.ambioterra.org.
