While Alberta’s boreal forest areas are commonly impacted by wildfire, natural regeneration of these forests can be marked by a significant delay. The Enhanced Reforestation of Legacy Disturbance (EnRLD) program is designed to reforest sites on Alberta public land that have been disturbed by wildfire that may be slow to regenerate naturally. This will enhance carbon sequestration while improving the forest resource in a cost-effective manner. Furthermore, the program will create reforestation jobs in rural areas, further encouraging thriving communities.
This program is funded in part by the Government of Alberta and the Government of Canada’s Low Carbon Economy Leadership Fund (LCELF).
