Greening the Canadian Landscape

The establishment and survival of plants to improve resource efficiency, beautify the Canadian landscape and increase the profitability and competitiveness of the Canadian nursery landscape sector are key goals of this research program. Current research focuses on soil remediation strategies to increase tree growth rates, nutrient management and validation of species selection on remediated sites. The program works with a number of partners across Canada to test and improve tree establishment in challenging locations.

Visit Vineland's new website which offers a soil remediation calculator and tree species selector. By considering key factors including soil quality, and selecting proper tree species, healthier trees can be grown for more resilient and greener landscapes.
