Sudbury Land Reclamation #3- Ontario

Year Planted: 2001
Trees Planted: 72,500
Location: Canada

This project was part of a massive land reclamation effort by the Region of Sudbury consisting of reforesting an area that was turned barren due to acid mining activity and smelting. Sudbury was 'put on the map' when astronauts from NASA were sent to train there because the terrain was similar to the moonscape. Since then, land reclamation has consisted of treatments with lime and fertilizers and millions of trees have been planted. In 2001 American Forests and Eddie Bauer sponsored the planting of 72,500 pine, spruce, oak, tamarack and cedarS trees. The trees were planted by land reclamation crews and community groups. Tree Canada Foundation also supported this project.


This project was supported by our corporate partner, the Alcoa Foundation.
