Miyawaki Forest

The Town of Pincourt is proud to launch a new tree-planting project to create a Miyawaki forest.

The Town of Pincourt, in collaboration with Arbre-Évolution, is proud to unveil its tree-planting project to create a Miyawaki-type forest in Olympique Park, near the municipal swimming pool. 

A huge thank you to the members of the Town Council, the various municipal departments involved, the Notre-Dame-de-Lorette and Chêne-Bleu school groups and Pincourt Vert for their collaboration and participation during the planting!
 

"The planting of the Miyawaki Forest at Olympique Park is an important step in our commitment to environmental sustainability," mentions Pincourt Mayor Claude Comeau. "We're delighted to be working with Arbre-Évolution, Pincourt's schools and our volunteers to create a natural space that will benefit future generations and help combat climate change. Since 2022, the Pincourt municipal council has committed to planting one hundred (100) trees per year for five (5) years. This new micro-forest will therefore contribute to achieving this important objective for our Town."
