The County of Wellington is distributing over 160,000 trees this year. The County, along with its partner Conservation Authorities, and the Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry promote the planting of trees and care of forests in Wellington County.
Trees must be planted in Wellington County and may not be used for resale. Seedlings are distributed free to residents of Wellington County, local environmental groups, service clubs, schools and Wellington's local municipalities. 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.
Green Legacy trees are SOLD OUT for 2017! Thank you to all of those who have placed tree requests. Please check out the Municipal Tree Day page for more information. 5,000 seedlings will be available (first come first served) at each of the Municipalities in Wellington County.
To request a tree, complete the Online Tree Request Form.
Confirmation of the Tree Requests will be emailed or mailed in early April. You will be notified of the date for pick up in your confirmation letter.
Your trees will be available at the Green Legacy Nursery (southern location - 6714 Wellington Road 34) if you have requested more than 500 trees. If you have requested less than 500 trees, your trees will be available at your local municipality. Municipal Tree Distribution Days occur on a Saturday in late April or early May.
