Our impact so far

Our Impact So Far


Trees Planted towards our 250,000 goal

Our mission with One Tree Planted aims to tackle deforestation and habitat degradation in Alberta and British Columbia through tree planting campaigns.

Reforestation benefits the climate and environment worldwide, combating climate change beyond borders through vital carbon sequestration.


Why Plant Trees?

We firmly believe in harnessing the power of trees to mitigate climate change, enhance air and water quality, and create habitats for a diverse range of species. Our sustainability pledge is rooted in combating deforestation, restoring ecosystems, and promoting biodiversity.

Where is the Impact

This initiative will focus on reforestation projects in Alberta and British Columbia; 2 provinces that have suffered significant deforestation and habitat degradation due to various factors.

How Does it Work

Starting May 1, 2023, we will donate a portion of all proceeds from all Basecamp Resorts properties to One Tree Planted, and for every dollar donated, 1 tree will be planted in Alberta or BC.

Our Reforestation Projects


British Columbia - Yunesit'in Rehabilitation

Yunesit’in Government is an indigenous Tsilhqot’in community located 114 km west of Williams Lake on the Chilcotin Plateau. The community’s Caretaker Area includes lands extending from Highway 20 to the north, to the Fraser River to the west, the Chilcotin Mountains to the south, and the Chilko River to the East. Extensive timber harvest, forest health epidemics (starting with the Mountain Pine Beetle outbreak in the 1990s), and catastrophic wildfires (in the 2010s) have had a devastating impact on the ecological health and function of pine- and Douglas-fir-dominated ecosystems in the region. As stewards of these lands, the community of Yunesit’in Government has a vested interest in the health of forests in the Caretaker Area and the many values they hold. There are a series of inoperable Cutting Permits which present opportunities for stand rehabilitation in the Sub-boreal Pine Spruce Biogeoclimatic Zone. The Yunesit’in community works closely with the BC Wildfire Service (BCWS) to plan and conduct cultural and prescribed burning activities within the Yunesit’in Caretaker Area. There is little opportunity for sawlog or fiber recovery on these permits (currently held a forestry licensee) as they suffered heavy mortality during the mountain pine beetle in the early 2000s. There are secured stands for rehabilitation of these stands through knockdown, firewood recovery, residuals management, site preparation, and reforestation. Yunesit'in wishes to create a sustainable landscape that includes fuel mitigation to reduce impact of future wildfires, as well as rehabilitation of forests that will otherwise have very slow recovery to healthy stand conditions following the initial mountain pine beetle infestation. OTP’s involvement in the project would be in the restoration stage. Reforestation will take place after firewood is recovered to help heat the Yunesit’in community. The standing and downed dead mature pine, and pest-infested younger pine, are limiting the ecological recovery of the site. 2BT

British Columbia - AR Planting Pilots

Ecological restoration through afforestation/reforestation is seen as one of the most integral tools to mitigate and adapt to climate change. Afforestation/reforestation projects in combination with programs aimed at reducing emissions have the potential to significantly impact concentrations of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. In light of the upcoming release of the Forest Carbon Offset Protocol (FCOP) we have engaged with several organizations and stakeholders throughout British Columbia in an effort to initiate Afforestation/Reforestation (AR) projects. These projects will plant native and ecologically appropriate trees in disturbed and ecologically degraded private land and Indian Reserves throughout British Columbia for the purpose of ecosystem restoration and carbon sequestration while adopting the standards that will be necessary in the future to acquire carbon offsets under FCOP. We have multiple 2021 wildfire restoration projects in development with our First Nations partners. Specifically, we are in the process of developing projects with the Ulkatcho and Lytton First Nations for the restoration of fire impacted forests. The Lytton First Nation project includes some very high profile sites to assist in restoring the Lytton town site as well as fire impacted reservation lands. We will accomplish this with nursery surplus seedlings for Spring 2022. The projects with our First Nations partners span multiple Biogeoclimatic Zones and will include tree species such as hybrid spruce (Picea glauca x engelmannii), lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta), Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii), and ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosae). These projects represent a critical intersection between climate change mitigation through enhanced high rigour carbon sequestration and climate change resilience/adaptation. These projects will restore wildlife habitat (Old Growth Management Areas and Riparian Management Areas), protect communities from future wildfires, assist with First Nations economic development through large-scale climate finance projects, and sequester carbon. 2. Cariboo-Chilcotin Forest District Lot Reforestation This project will reforest 145 hectares of land jointly managed by the Canadian Armed Forces, Cariboo-Chilcotin Forest District and the Esk’etemc and Tl’esqox First Nations. The fire in 2017 burned with extremely high intensity and incinerated the organic component of the top soil and seed bank. Forest professionals estimate it will take at least 30 years before these sites will begin to regenerate through natural seeding processes. Planting prescriptions will be developed by professional silviculture foresters using best management practices such as the MoFLNRORD guidance document on reforesting dry forests, Climate Based Seed Transfer, and Climate Change Informed Species Selection, which will ensure that native and ecologically planted species will be planted and are resilient to future climate. Tree species will include lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta), Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii), and western larch (Larix occidentalis). We will also be working alongside district stewardship officers ensuring we’re in line with any relevant landscape level management plans. 2BT

British Columbia - Nazko Wildfire Restoration Project

This project will plant tree seedlings to reforest previously forested lands that were severely impacted by the 2017 Plateau Fire near Nazko, British Columbia (BC). The sites in this project have been surveyed and were found to have little to no natural regeneration coming in after the wildfire. When there is natural regeneration in this part of BC, it is mostly lodgepole pine and trembling aspen due to their respective adaptations for regenerating after a wildfire. By planting we are able to increase the species diversity by including native species that are not so well adapted to coming back after a wildfire such as hybrid spruce and Douglas-fir. Planting prescriptions for each site have been made based on survey data and the ecology of each planting site. All tree species are native to British Columbia and are chosen to ensure each site is planted with an ecologically suitable species mix. One year old seedlings will be grown at commercial nurseries and then shipped to the planting location. The seedlings will be planted by professional tree planting contractors at a density of 1800 per hectare. Quality assurance is conducted on all planting sites to ensure that the prescription is followed and that the trees are planted in such a way that gives them the best chance of success. 2BT
