If you have the land, we have the trees!

Looking for a way to help the environment? Our annual DIY Seedling Sale is the perfect way to help the environment and add beauty to your property. Each year you can purchase tree and shrub seedlings at a reduced cost to green your landscape and help make a difference. Species range in price from $0.99 to $1.59 per seedling, plus HST and handling.

Thanks for your interest in our DIY tree planting program. 2021 sales are now closed.

If you're interested in r​eceiving information when our 2022 sale opens, please join our mailing list.​

If you've already placed an order – details on when your order will be available for pick-up at Scanlon Creek Conservation Area will be emailed to you in early April 2021.

How does it work?

Our annual tree and seedling sale will open again in January 2022. 

All seedling species are sold in bundles of 50 and we require a minimum purchase of one bundle per species, but with seedlings priced as low as 99 cents each, it's still an affordable option. If 50 trees is more than you need, consider asking neighbours or friends if they want to place an order with you. You must be a resident in the Lake Simcoe watershed​ to participate.

Species are dependent on nursery availability, but we typically offer the following seedlings: White Pine, Red Pine, White Spruce, Norway Spruce, White Cedar, Tamarack, Red Oak, European larch, Silver Maple, and Staghorn Sumack.

For more information, please contact our forestry team

No time to plant this year? 

If you have a larger property (more than two acres), we offer a full service planting pro​​gram which includes a customized planting plan and specialized equipment to undertake the planting. You may also qualify for a funding grant to cover between 50 and 90% of the costs!​
