How does it work?

Our annual tree and seedling sale will run until January 30, 2020 at 4:30pm.

Place your order here. If you aren't sure what to order, feel free to contact our forestry team​ for assistance. 

You will receive an order confirmation with payment instructions to complete the purchase. We only accept Visa or Mastercard. 

Once payment has gone through, your trees will be reserved for you and your order will be available for pick-up at Scanlon Creek Conservation Area on April 25, 2020. Don’t worry, we’ll send you a reminder email. 

Seedlings are sold as bare root, meaning they do not come packed in soil. The seedlings come in a large paper bag, and will be dormant at the time of purchase. Buyers should plan on planting them within a few days of picking them up on April 25 - we'll give you some instructions to help with your planning before you pick up your order.

You must be a resident in the Lake Simcoe watershed to participate.
