Here is what a few people have said about Trees In Trust:

"I purchased a piece of woodland In New Brunswick in memory of my brother-in-law. I can not think of a more fitting gift or tribute for a loved one or friend. I will be highly recommending "Trees In Trust" to all of my face book friends and family. Keep up the good work. Organizations such as this one are of great value to this world!"
V Gillam, Huron County, ONT

"Thank you for this very very laudable project -- we are thrilled to be a part of your efforts!  I did print a certificate and they are very impressive indeed!"
T Bridge, Saskatoon, SK

"I just thought that (my friend) didnít need more things and this would be a great idea. She was excited and immediately went on line to look at it. It was exactly what I had hoped it would be for her"
J Magrath, Charlottetown, PEI

"Thank you for the certificate. No problem downloading, and got a very nice print-out to laminate and send to my Daughter for posterity"
B Heslip, Prince George, BC

"I spent $30 on a piece of woodland for my son's birthday. Once he saw where it was on a map, he was really intrigued"
F MacEachern, Charlottetown, PEI

"280 square feet of woodland has been dedicated to my Dad. There are a lot of people cutting down our trees, so I think that if we preserve as much as we can, it's a good idea"
D Cardinal, Cornwall, PEI

Here are two letters of support from Provincial Ministers of Natural Resources.


About Trees In Trust       top

Trees In Trust was set up so that you can quickly and easily secure a piece of woodland as a gift, as a memorial or to reduce your carbon footprint.  You don't own the woodland, rather it is held in your name forever by a not-for-profit charitable land trust which protects the woodland in perpetuity.  Trees In Trust works closely with these land trusts and is used by them to raise funds to secure and preserve woodland for the benefit of wildlife, for the environment and for future generations.

All Trees In Trust land is located in Canada and is owned and managed either by the Island Nature Trust in Prince Edward Island, by the Nature Trust of New Brunswick in New Brunswick, by Ontario Nature in Ontario and by Meewasin Valley Authority in Saskatchewan.

Our mission is "to enable land trusts to preserve and restore as much native forest as possible by allowing large numbers of people the opportunity to secure small pieces of woodland."  We aim to have protected 3,000 acres of threatened woodland by our tenth year of operation - and hope to far exceed this target.

Trees In Trust is a trading name of 6625681 Canada Inc.

How your woodland is protected      top

Trees In Trust woodland is managed by a number of charitable land trusts.  These land trusts are run by committed, local, environmentally forward-thinking individuals.   All land trusts that manage Trees In Trust woodland are not-for-profit charities that exist primarily to secure and protect environmentally important forested areas and other endangered land.  Currently, all Trees In Trust land is owned and managed by the Island Nature Trust , the Nature Trust of New Brunswick, Ontario Nature and Meewasin Valley Authority.

By securing of a plot of woodland, the future of that plot is assured.  The plot is held in perpetuity in the name of the donor, or in memorial of a departed friend or relative.  For one acre dedications, a business will have its name listed on the Trees In Trust website and on the respective land trust website, complete with a link to the business' own website.

Once a piece of woodland has been secured, the land is protected by the strongest possible laws available, with the aim of protecting that woodland forever.  The name of the individual or business to whom that woodland is dedicated will be associated with that woodland forever.

Different levels of protection are given by different legislations.  The highest possible protection is always given to your woodland.

The Natural Areas Protection Act (1988) (and amendments) protects Trees In Trust land in Prince Edward Island, Canada.  The full text of the act can be found at http://www.gov.pe.ca/law/statutes/pdf/n-02.pdf.  In summary, the act designates the land as an ecological reserve.  The protection is attached to the deed and is binding on subsequent owners.  Cutting, destroying or removing any vegetation from a designated natural area is not permitted without proper authorization.

In other provinces the woodland is protected by right of ownership.
