The Honda Canada Foundation was created to lend a hand to registered non-profit charities that focus on their four pillars: Family, Engineering, Education, and the Environment.
Honda Canada Foundation’s One Honda. One Tree. tree planting campaign improves the health of forests and enhances the well-being of Canadians by planting a tree on behalf of Honda’s customers who purchase an ATV or lawn-care product during the campaign period.
Since 2013, Honda Canada Foundation, through its One Honda. One Tree. campaign has supported tree planting in the company’s five regions across Canada. Each year, the Foundation plants a tree for every Honda lawn mower, tiller or trimmer purchased at an authorized retailer in Canada between April 1st and July 31st.
FRC works with local planting partners to identify sites within each region that support greater connectivity between forested areas in order to support enhanced ecosystem services, including carbon sequestration, wildlife habitat, source water protection, and recreational space.
For example, in Surrey, British Columbia, Forest Recovery Canada partnered with the University of British Columbia to plant trees within the Malcolm Knapp Research Forest on the UBC campus. The Malcolm Knapp Research Forest is currently home to more than 100 active research projects related to forestry, biodiversity, wildlife, and conservation. More than 150 different wildlife species inhabit the site.
