Maple Leaves Forever is a charitable foundation that advocates and supports the planting of Native Canadian Maples in increasing numbers across the rural landscape of southern Ontario.
In the late 19th century, farmers planted roadsides and laneways with maples from their woodlots in return for a government incentive. This gave rise to a legacy of lines of maples and other hardwoods bordering roads and dividing farm fields.
These trees are now dying and are not being replaced by Native Canadian Maples.
Our mission is to share information about these beautiful, symbolic trees while emphasizing the importance of restoring them to our landscape. It is essential that future generations be able to learn about and benefit from the environmental contributions Native Canadian maple trees provide.
We encourage you to choose Native Canadian maples for your future tree planting projects.
Visit Maple Leaves Forever Founder, Ken Jewett at booth #2346 to learn more about the importance of choosing Native Canadian maple trees and how Maple Leaves Forever can help with your planting project.
The celebration isn't over! Commemorate Canada's 150th by planting certified Native Canadian maple trees.
