GRCA taking tree orders for spring planting

CAMBRIDGE - As summer fades to fall, it’s time for rural landowners to start thinking about ordering trees from the Grand River Conservation Authority (GRCA) for planting next spring.

Private landowners in the watershed own nearly 80 per cent of the land and can make an immense contribution toward tree cover.

Landowners in the Grand River watershed who have at least one hectare (2.5 acres) of land are eligible to order trees to plant themselves. Online tree orders can be placed until March 1.

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 during the spring of 2018. A minimum order of 200 seedlings or 20 tall stock trees (this includes saplings, whips and potted trees) is required.

Landowners with at least two hectares (five acres) of property may also be interested in having a GRCA forestry specialist come to their property to put together a planting plan, arrange for the planting of their trees, and help access funding programs to offset the cost of tree planting projects (if applicable).

A minimum quantity of 500 seedlings or 50 tall stock is required for GRCA staff to support with planting.

There is no cost for this service, but demand is high. Interested landowners will be put on a waiting list to be contacted at a later date by one the GRCA’s forestry specialists.

Email or call 519-621-2761 and ask to speak to a forestry specialist.

For more information, to order trees and to view the tree availability list, go to the forestry section of the GRCA website at
