Free tree seedlings once again available this spring
Local conservation authorities invite applications while supplies last
A limited inventory of white spruce and white pine tree seedlings is once again available to county residents, while supplies last. To gain access, you need to apply, though, and the sooner the better.
The annual effort, which is the 24th edition for the Raisin Region Conservation Authority, invites online applications for the program via the link here.
The RRCA has set a goal of adding 58,000 trees to the local landscape (including 10,000 through the free seedling program), while partner South Nation CA aims for 200,000.
On a personal note, I take advantage of this offer every year. It feels great to plant trees locally, especially when so many are sadly being cut down.
Nearby, Cornwall residents will also have access to free tree seedlings at the city’s Eco Day on 22 April. RRCA staff will be handing out free white pine and white spruce seedlings at Lamoureux Park from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., while supplies last.
The RRCA also offers a reasonably priced purchase program for those looking to purchase other tree species and/or larger quantities. But note, the order deadline is 31 March. Here is the link for more information.
