A FEW PICTURES FROM LAST YEAR
WATERAX TREE PLANTING INITIATIVE
Considering all of the wildfires that have ravaged landscapes in the past few years, it is essential to think about land restoration. Planting trees after wildfires is critical to mitigate further damage and establish a new forest for future generations. In partnership with various organizations in Canada and the United States, WATERAX has already donated 10,000 trees since July 2017 to contribute to forest regeneration after severe wildfires.
