Since 1957, JDI has been an industry leader in growing and planting trees. To-date, we have planted over a billion trees and continue to plant more every year. Our research shows planted forests grow four times more wood than naturally regenerated softwood forests. The four-times increase in yield we achieve on each planted hectare is why planting trees is critical to our strategy to grow more wood than we harvest and reduce our footprint on the lands we manage.
