About Archived

Trees are the solution.


With 20 years of history in Alberta, AWES is a non-profit organization with a diverse membership that shares the common goal of encouraging sustainable forest management.

Through collaboration with NGOs, universities and research institutions, the private sector, conservation organizations, municipalities, and rural citizens we are able to work towards a more sustainable and equitable world one tree at a time.

Mission: To share with others the value of trees through the delivery of tree-centred solutions and the conservation of healthy and productive landscapes.

Vision: A world where forestry and agroforestry based solutions, products, and services are increasingly used to enhance the social, economic and environmental values for private and public lands.
