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.
