Order trees for spring
The Grand River Conservation Authority says fall is the best time for rural landowners to start ordering trees for planting next spring. Landowners in the Grand River watershed who have at least one hectare of land are eligible to order trees that they can plant themselves. Online tree orders can be placed until March 1, 2019. Orders can also be placed by mail. Early ordering is advised to ensure the best selection of trees. All tree orders can be picked up at the GRCA head office in Cambridge next spring. The minimum order is 200 seedlings or 20 tall stock trees (this includes saplings, whips and potted trees). All watershed residents are welcome to purchase trees at the GRCA’s annual tree sale that takes place in May. Details about this event will be posted online at www.grandriver.ca/events. For more information, to order trees and to view the tree availability list, visit the forestry section of the GRCA website at www.grandriver.ca/Trees.
