Tree Planting Services
Maitland Conservation provides technical assistance to landowners for the planting of both large stock and seedling trees. Whether it be marginal land, windbreaks, stream buffering, shoreline buffering, or roadside planting projects, Maitland staff will work with you to develop a planting plan that fits both the property and your preferences. Landowners may choose to plant these trees themselves or use one of our partner planting contractors. For more information on how to get started, please contact Greg Urquhart at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 519-335-3557 ext. 235.
Tree and Shrub Orders
Maitland Conservation is now accepting tree and shrub orders for spring 2021. We have a variety of large stock and seedling trees, plus potted shrub species available. These trees and shrubs are suitable for windbreaks, stream and shoreline buffering.
New This Year: In past years, Maitland Conservation has used bare root stock for deciduous trees. To increase survival rates and make planting easier for landowners, all our large stock trees and shrubs will be either ball and burlap or potted. Since all stock will be potted, the deciduous trees will now be a smaller stock size.
To order, please fill out the form located on the side tab of the page. Orders can be submitted to Greg Urquhart by email at email@example.com, by fax at 519-335-3516, or by mail.
Deadline for ordering trees is January 15, 2021.
Grants for Tree Planting
Planting trees and shrubs on erosion-prone land or in buffer strips along watercourses may be eligible for funding assistance through the Huron County Clean Water Project or the Wellington Country Rural Water Quality Program. A new grant category has recently been added to the Huron County Clean Water Project for planting living snow fences.
