Planting Coordination Services
Maitland Conservation staff are here to help you with your next planting project. We will work with you to create a plan for your property and coordinate having a contractor come out to complete the planting.
To get started:
- Decide on the type of planting project you want to complete.
- Contact Maitland Conservation’s Forestry staff to discuss the project you’re are looking to do.
- Staff will come out on site to walk the property with you, providing advice for the project.
- Staff will then create a tree and shrub planting plan.
- Once approved, Maitland Conservation will coordinate with the contractor to provide quotes, site visits and timing of the planting. Staff will also research other funding opportunities that will help offset the costs of the project.
For more information, please contact Greg Urquhart at 519-335-3557 ext. 235 or by email at email@example.com.
A variety of large stock and seedling trees, plus potted shrub species are available to order. To make transporting and planting easier for landowners, all large stock trees and shrubs will be either ball and burlap or potted. With this change, the deciduous trees will be a smaller stock size than in previous years.
Your planting project may be eligible for cost-share funding. Maitland Conservation staff will help you assess if your project is eligible for a grant. Limited funding is currently available through:
- Huron Clean Water Project
- Wellington Rural Water Quality Program
- 50 Million Tree Program
- OSCIA programs
