The County of Wellington Living Snow Fence Programme subsidizes the planting of potted trees with a planting incentive programme. The Green Legacy is working with the County Engineering Services Department on locating sites and pairing volunteers with landowners to create Living Snow Fences. A good example of the effect of tree wind breaks can be seen at the University of Guelph Experimental Farm on Wellington Road 7 south of Elora. There is evidence of significant cost savings in winter road maintenance, as well as increased road safety and environmental benefits from these trees to both the community and the farmer.
The Grand River Conservation Authority is our partner in the Programme and makes site visits and organizes the Living Snow Fence planting.
