Tree Planting

Tree Seedling Sales Program

Tree Seedling Sales are now CLOSED for the season.
Thank you to all who purchased trees this year! The Tree Seedling Sales program will be available again in January 2023.

Each year, Otonabee Conservation offers landowners the Tree Seedling Sales Program, with a wide selection of native tree and shrub species for sale

We offer many native species of evergreen and broad leaf tree and shrub seedlings. These trees and shrubs are bare-root seedlings, are approximately 1-2 years old, and range in size from 6 to 30 inches (15-75cm).

Please note that tree seedlings must be purchased in units of 25. Once your order is completed, you will receive an email confirmation. We will contact you prior to pickup to arrange for payment by Visa, MasterCard, or American Express. There is a $30 administration fee that will be applied at the end of your order.

Contactless pickup will be in early May, just in time for the planting season. You will be notified directly to sign up for a pick up time.

Questions? Contact us by email at or by telephone at 705-745-5791 ext. 223.
