“We are excited to continually offer this program to Caledon residents. By making native tree stock and seedling options accessible to local residents, we are encouraging private reforestation and restoration efforts,” said Mayor Allan Thompson. “This is one of the ways we are tackling climate change and being an environmentally responsible community.”

The following potted trees and tree seedlings are available through the 2018 program:

·        Three types of coniferous (softwood) seedling species include white cedar, white pine and white spruce. The minimum order is 1 bundle that contains 10 seedlings.
