Otonabee Conservation offers Tree Seedling Sales Program again in 2024!

Tree Seedling Sale opens online February 7th at 9:00am

Otonabee Conservation is once again encouraging landowners in the Otonabee Region Watershed to enhance their property and mitigate climate change by planting trees. Each year, Otonabee Conservation offers a wide selection of native tree and shrub species for landowners to purchase.

“Trees play an important role in maintaining a healthy and resilient natural environment; planting more trees will help provide habitat and mitigate the impacts of climate change,” explains Meredith Carter, Manager,  Watershed Management Program at Otonabee Conservation, “Last year, over 100 landowners in our watershed purchased and planted over 12,000 trees and shrubs through our Tree Seedling Sales Program. This will translate to approximately, 2.7 million kg of sequestered Carbon over the lifetime of these trees!”

Landowners can choose from a variety of coniferous and deciduous trees and shrubs including White Pine, Eastern White Cedar, Red Oak, Sugar Maple, Highbush Cranberry, and Buttonbush, along with some unique species such as Tulip Tree, Bitternut Hickory, and Serviceberry. The minimum order is 25 seedlings of a selected species.

“Trees and forests also protect water quality in our rivers and streams,” continues Carter, “They provide habitat for birds and other wildlife, and they add to the health of our communities by purifying the air and enhancing the environment around us.”

Orders can be submitted online starting on February 7th, with pickup in spring. The order deadline is Sunday, March 17th. Demand for tree seedlings has been high over the past three years; for the best selection of species and quantities, be sure to get your order in soon. Payments can be made online, which is convenient and secure.
