TD Forests

Help grow and protect forests big and small.

We’re working to grow our community forests

Urban forests and green spaces are the core of thriving cities and towns. They are the heart of our communities. So that’s why we’re helping to grow urban forests, now and for future generations, with TD Tree Days, and TD Green Streets.

As part of our commitment to grow and protect forests across North America, TD is also a proud supporter of MillionTreesNYC. This program is helping the New York Restoration Project reach its goal of planting and caring for one million trees across the five boroughs of New York City.

Working for forests everywhere

We’ve lost large areas of natural forest cover through urban development – which means we’ve also lost the many valuable environmental and community benefits associated with them. Through TD Forests, TD has committed to work within communities to:

  • Increase the number of urban trees
  • Raise awareness of the value and benefits of urban forests and forest ecosystems
Protecting forest habitat
1420 football fields of forest have been protected to date.

We’re working with the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC) and The Nature Conservancy in the U.S. to help protect critical forest habitat across North America. In 2012 this included:

In 2013, we plan on protecting critical forest habitat in British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Quebec, Nova Scotia, South Carolina and New York State. We’ll be announcing those properties later this year, so stay tuned!

Small changes can make a big impact

Banks use a lot of paper – and our customers and employees have said they want to use less. So we’ve made paper reduction and responsible paper use a pillar of the TD Forests program.

Our initial goal is to reduce our paper by 20 per cent by 2015 – that’s equivalent to about 300 million sheets of typical office paper a year. How are we doing this? We’re changing our paper habits. That means finding ways to run our business with less paper.

Let’s face it, paper is a staple and we’re still going to use quite a bit! But we’re making sure that we use this valuable resource responsibly by recycling and by using paper sourced from sustainably managed forests. Here are some ways you can make a difference:

Forest Stewardship Council Canada and Forest Stewardship Council United States
More than 143 million hectares/ 353 million acres2 of North America’s working forests are sustainably managed to produce high quality paper and building products. Sustainable forest management also includes protecting the environment, providing jobs, and protecting the wide range of benefits forests provide. Look for the logo that ensures your paper is certified as coming from a sustainably managed forest.
