Reforestation Assistance Service
Maitland Conservation provides technical and financial assistance to landowners for the planting of seedlings on marginal land. Staff will visit your site to develop a planting plan and determine appropriate species. Landowners may choose to plant the trees themselves or use one of our partner planting contractors. Applications for this service are processed in the fall. The seedlings are planted in the spring, usually in late April and early May. Please email Greg Urquhart at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 519-335-3557 ext. 235 for further information
Roadside/Windbreak Planting Service
Maitland Conservation also provides large stock trees to landowners and municipalities for planting in windbreaks or along roadsides. Our forestry staff will work with landowners to determine the most appropriate species for the planting site. Applications are processed in the fall and planting is done in the spring. Please email Greg Urquhart at email@example.com or call 519-335-3557 ext. 235 for further information
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.
