Our wildlife and ecosystems can't protect themselves, and that's why we're here

Earthroots' work began by fighting for the preservation of rare old-growth white and red pine forests in the Temagami region of Northern Ontario 37 years ago. We realized that there were more fights to be fought and have been on this mission ever since.

About us

Tell the province to stop logging Ontario's old-growth forests!

Ontario has old-growth red and white pine forests with 400 year old trees. Incredibly, these extremely precious and rare old-growth stands are treated the same as pine stands planted in 1900 and can be logged. Tell the province to stop cutting old-growth forests now.

Our work is made possible by our 12,000+ friends and supporters
