We are planting trees, controlling the spread of invasive species and protecting natural habitats on NCC-managed lands.

We have committed to four actions and six indicators under the “Sustainably managed lands and forests” goal. 

Our actions

Each action has a set of indicators — with clear, concrete and measurable targets — to evaluate success. The status of each are as reported in the 2010-2021 annual report.

6.1 Adopt and implement a forest strategy that considers natural and cultural heritage values, and focuses on urban tree protection.
