2020 tree seedling sale is now closed​

If you're interested in receiving information when our 2021 sale opens, please join our mailing list.​ 

If you've already placed an order - your order will be available for pick-up at Scanlon Creek Conservation Area​ on April 25, 2020.​​

​How does it work?

Our annual tree and seedling sale starts in January and is available for a limited time. The 2020 sale is now closed.

If you placed an order this year, your trees will be reserved for you and 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.

Full Service Planting

Want the trees but not the work? Outsource your project, we’re your experts! If you have a larger property (more than two acres) use our full service planting program.

The forestry team has over 90 years of experience planting in and around the Lake Simcoe watershed. We know what will survive and thrive, with the least fuss. Included is a customized planting plan and specialized equipment to see your trees in the ground in a day or two at most. We’ll make sure you get as much government grant funding as you can, typically between 50 and 90% of the costs! A 2,000 tree project can go for as little as $500. Contact us for details.
