June 5, 2010 set as Canada Planters' Day

Missed Canada Planter's Day this year, but it was all about the trees here in Timmins. The 5th was Arbour Day in Timmins.

Wintergreen Fund for Conservation again made white spruce tree seedlings available for a donation to the not for profit organization.

The day is intended to recognize silviculture workers, the work being done and the work needing to done to restore forests across the country. Media field tours, press releases and festivities of varying description are being organized in towns across provinces. The celebration of Canadian silviculture workers and their work is part of broader public awareness campaign soon to be announced by the Forestfacts: Plant More Trees movement.
