Want to know which trees grow best in your community?  The provincial government says the Tree Atlas can help.

The Tree Atlas, launched last week, is an online resource to help residents identify native Ontario tree species, learn which species grow best in their area, and when and how to plant a tree.

Two-thirds of Ontario -- an area equal in size to Germany, Italy and the Netherlands combined -- is covered in forests.

The provincial government says they plan to plant 50 million more trees by 2025.
