The Essex Region Conservation Authority has extended its spring tree planting order deadline.

Landowners who wish to order trees for this spring are also able to do so until March 18, 2016. The cost of seedling trees begins at 69 cents, while prices for large stock trees begin at $13. Participants must own an acre of land and the minimum purchase of 100 seedlings or 15 large stock trees is required.

“Planting trees on your property not only helps the environment, but can improve property values, reduce heating and cooling costs and improve the aesthetics of your land,” says Rob Davies, ERCA’s Forester. “We also have some grant programs available to landowners wishing to undertake restoration projects such as reforestation, buffer strips or prairie planting. We’d encourage landowners who would like to learn more to get in touch with us as soon as possible, as some tree species are already sold out.”

For more information about ERCA’s tree planting program, check their website http://erca.org/programs-services/tree-planting-stewardship or contact ERCA at 519-776-5209 ext. 310.
