The County of Wellington is distributing 161,000 trees in 2015. The County, along with its partners the Grand River Conservation Authority, the Ministry of Natural Resources and the Wellington County Stewardship Council promote the planting of trees and care of forests in Wellington County. The benefits of planting trees include: cleaner air and water, reduced soil erosion and flooding, improved wildlife habitat, enhanced recreational opportunities and wood products.
ELIGIBILITY: Trees must be planted in Wellington County and may not be used for resale. Seedlings are distributed free to local environmental groups, service clubs, schools, Wellington's local municipalities and private landowners. If you would like to support the programme you can make a tax deductible charitable donation. These funds will go towards the educational component of the Green Legacy Programme.
The Green Legacy would like to thank all those that requested trees this year.
To print out a Tree Order Form that can be returned in person, by mail or fax please download here.
Confirmation of the Tree Requests will be emailed or mailed in early April. Your trees will be available at the Green Legacy nursery if you have requested more than 500 trees. If you have requested less than 500 trees, your trees will be available at your municipality. Please see the linked table below for the date, time, and location for pick up.
Please contact Jacquie Wolowich at firstname.lastname@example.org or 519.546.2228 to arrange pick up at the Green Legacy Nursery.
Thank you for helping to make the County of Wellington a little greener!
