Ancient red and white pine forests used to stretch across Ontario from the southern part of the province to the northern edge of the boreal forest. The Eastern white pine is the tallest tree in Ontario and can live for 500 years.

Wolf Lake continues to be explored for minerals in the hopes of opening a mine, and Temagami is being logged as you read this. It's time to permanently protect these forests before they are lost forever.
