Tree Canada to be recognized at Canadian Environmental Awards

  Ottawa – Tree Canada will be recognized at the Canadian Environmental Awards in Montréal, Quebec on June 4th during a prestigious awards ceremony that honours Canada's greenest individuals and organizations. Coinciding with Environment Week, the awards ceremony will recognize the exceptional environmental contributions of people and organizations across Canada.

Tree Canada is being recognized in the "Restoration" category for efforts and accomplishments made during its 15 year history. These include the rehabilitation of urban and rural ecosystems, the planting of over 74 million trees and its promotion of tree planting to offset carbon emissions. 

"We are very proud to have received this recognition and wish to thank our community, provincial and national supporters who understand how trees really do Grow Clean Air", said Michael Rosen, President of Tree Canada. "In particular I need to thank Stratos, an Ottawa-based environmental consulting organization and one of our carbon neutral participants for nominating us" he said.

"The real praise," added Rosen, "must go to our dynamic Board, our hard-working staff, our corporate sponsors, public sector supporters and the various community groups across Canada who have had the vision and energy to see the benefit of a healthy and strong Canadian urban forest," Rosen said. "With 80% of us living in urban areas, this great Forest Nation is still showing the world our commitment to a greener world", he said.

Mr. Rosen will be attending the ceremony with André Juneau, Chair of the Board, Suzanne Valiquet, Director of Communications and Mélissa Ducharme and Aâfef Longou, Tree Canada Community Advisers for Montréal. The following day (June 5th) Mr. Rosen will be addressing the students of Montréal's Honoré Mercier Elementary School at 9:30 a.m. with former Québec Minister of the Environment, Thomas Mulcair.

Tree Canada is a not-for-profit charitable organization established to encourage Canadians to plant and care for trees in urban and rural environments. To date it has engaged Canada's top companies, public agencies, individuals and volunteers to support the planting and maintenance of over 74 million trees, the regreening of over 400 schoolyards, seven national urban forest conferences, 30 carbon neutral conferences and other efforts to sensitize Canadians to the benefits of planting and maintaining trees.
