Keep Manitoba’s Pineland Forest Nursery Open

This petition had 1,591 supporters

The Manitoba Government is selling the Pineland Forest Nursery near Hadashville, MB – a massive facility that grows tree seedlings and both produces and stores seeds. It’s a move that puts our province’s environmental sustainability in jeopardy!

The government has issued a Request for Proposals for a private buyer and says operations at Pineland will end by December 31, 2018. The closure will eliminate eight full-time and 17 part-time jobs, plus seasonal employment. It also threatens the province’s bio-diversity because the Nursery – which has been around since 1953 – provides a highly specialized service that no other facility in Manitoba offers.

Pineland helps add millions of new trees to our forests each year and houses a seed bank for trees of many varieties to ensure Manitoba’s bio-diversity is maintained for future generations to enjoy. Without the Nursery, our forests will suffer.

Please sign and share this petition to send a message to the Manitoba Government. We're urging them to keep the Pineland Forest Nursery open and to keep it public.

The future of our forests is at stake.
