The Evergreen Reforestation Initiative
PLANTING 1 MILLION TREES BY 2035
Evergreen Building Maintenance is dedicated to environmental sustainability and has set a significant goal to plant one million trees by the year 2035. This commitment became even more vital in the wake of the 2023 devastating forest fire that struck Kelowna, displacing thousands and ravaging hundreds of acres of precious forested land. We take these environmental challenges seriously and believe that it’s our responsibility to be part of the solution. Through our tree-planting initiative, we aim to contribute to the reforestation efforts, not only in Kelowna but also in other affected regions. Our pledge to plant one million trees represents our unwavering commitment to the environment, as we work towards rebuilding and preserving the natural beauty and balance that our planet deserves.
Young forests act as natural barriers, slowing down wildfires, reducing fire intensity, and producing less harmful smoke.
Pests like the bark beetle and Gypsy Moth can damage our forests. A forest with a mix of tree ages and species is stronger against changing climate conditions.
Forests serve as sanctuaries for wildlife, from birds like the Gold Eagle to mammals like the mountain lion to insects and amphibians.
