Private landowners and municipalities in Alberta are being offered help to replace trees lost to mountain pine beetle. The Alberta Mountain Pine Beetle ReLeaf program provides funding to homeowners, private landowners, and municipalities for replacing trees that have been killed by mountain pine beetle on private or municipal land.

The ReLeaf program, first launched in 2010, is a partnership between Alberta Sustainable Resource Development, Tree Canada and its corporate sponsors TELUS and Strive Energy. More than $100,000 has been contributed for 2011-12, with the Government of Alberta providing $60,000 and TELUS and Strive Energy donating $30,000 and $10,000 respectively.
