Clean Communities

Did You Know?

By taking in carbon dioxide (CO2) and converting it into oxygen (O2) during photosynthesis, trees naturally remove excess carbon from the air. They also filter out a number of air pollutants.

Trees for Tomorrow

Trees help clean our air by filtering pollutants and absorbing carbon dioxide, in turn using it to produce oxygen. As part of the effort to work with communities for cleaner, healthier airsheds, the B.C. government is introducing the Trees for Tomorrow strategy -- a large scale, urban afforestation program that will ensure that millions of trees are planted in backyards, schoolyards, hospital grounds, civic parks, campuses, parking lots and other public spaces across the province.
