Planting trees for the future of British Columbia's Forests Columbia Extreme is proud to assist in British Columbia's goal of zero-net deforestation. Through planning we can achieve improved reforestation success. Planting after a harvest or natural disturbance ensures even distribution and allows for the use of a broad mix of species.
To date, Columbia Extreme has planted over 4,000,000 seedlings throughout the Rocky Mountains.
