At Wellington Windows and Doors, we recognize that it is our responsibility to give back to the community. Sustainability is one of our primary missions. Because of that, we have proudly partnered with Tree Canada to do our part in protecting the environment and making the world a better place.
For every installation we complete, Wellington has pledged to plant trees with the help of Tree Canada. This way, we can share our success as a business with those around us.
About 82% of Canadians live in an urban community, which is why trees are so important to maintain. Green spaces provide economic, psychological, and social benefits that can improve a person’s overall well-being and happiness.
So far, Tree Canada has planted over 82 million trees (including 10,000 edible fruit and nut trees) throughout 1,100 communities, schools, and hospitals. These forest restoration efforts help support wildlife habitats, fight climate change, clean soil and waterways, and offset carbon pollution. We feel that this is a worthy mission worth contributing to, which is why we are proud to do our part.
In addition to reforesting, Tree Canada provides several other services for the community. It provides disaster relief through its #OperationReLeaf program to help areas that have suffered from floods, forest fires, tornadoes, or even beetle invasions. Notable projects it has assisted with recently include helping replace trees lost due to the mountain pine beetle in Alberta and providing relief after the 2011 tornado in Goderich.
Plus, Tree Canada has gathered the nation’s largest conglomerate of urban forestry experts to continuously research new avenues of supporting the environment.
