Town of Caledon’s Online Tree Seedling Store Now Open!

Posted on Monday January 06, 2020

Caledon landowners including residents, businesses and schools, can now order trees through the Town’s 2020 Tree Seedling Program. The program provides Caledon residents with options to purchase potted trees and bundled seedlings. Since 2002, an estimated 185,372trees have been distributed to Caledon landowners through this program.

The Town has partnered with Forests Ontario this year to offer bundled seedlings at a reduced cost through their Over-the-Counter tree sales program. All seedlings purchased through the Town’s Tree Seedling Program will be counted towards Forest Ontario’s 50 Million Tree Program.

“We are proud to be partnering with Forests Ontario to increase tree canopy in the Caledon area,” said Mayor Allan Thompson. “This program offers the dual benefit of reducing the local impacts of climate change by absorbing carbon from the atmosphere, improving local air quality, and contributing to broader Provincial-wide goals.”

The following potted trees and bundled seedlings are available through the Tree Seedling program:

  • Ten types of potted deciduous (hardwood) species which include: Red Oak, Silver Maple, Sugar Maple, Red Maple, Red/Silver Cross Maple, White Birch, Black Cherry, White Oak, Black Walnut and Bur Oak.
  • Three types of coniferous (softwood) seedling species which include: White Cedar, White Pine and White Spruce. The minimum order is one bundle which contains 10 seedlings.
