Details for placing tree/shrub seedling orders for the 2018 Spring Season will be available Fall 2017

Minimum Order 

  • Seedlings come in bundles of 10; all orders must be placed in multiples of 10 per species.
  • Conifers are $1.00/seedling; deciduous trees and shrubs are $1.25/seedling.
  • All orders are subject to a $10.00 administration, shipping and handling fee.


  • You will be invoiced by email for your order starting April 1, 2017.
  • Payment by credit card, cash or cheque (payable to Lower Trent Conservation) will be accepted in advance, or at pick up.

Order Pick-up 

  • You will be notified by email when, and where, your tree seedlings will be ready for pick-up (usually late April).
  • Pick-up times will be scheduled during two (2) days during the week only.
  • All species will be labeled. 
  • Seedlings are only a foot or two tall and packaged in big paper or plastic bags. A car or pick-up truck will be sufficient to accommodate your order when taking it home.

Please keep in mind 

  • We usually start taking orders around November 1st for the following spring and this is when there is the best selection.  Orders are taken on a first come first served basis.  As seedling species become sold out, you will see "none available" beside them in the order form.
  • By placing an order, you agree to pick up and plant the tree seedlings.
  • As the seedlings are bare root stock, plan to plant as soon as possible after they have been picked up.
  • Instructions are available for proper hand planting if needed. A tree planter is also available for rent ($50/day) – a tractor is required to pull it. 
  • Tree survival is affected by many factors such a weather and ground conditions – there is no tree survival guarantee.
  • Species availability varies from year to year.  You will be notified if ordered seedlings are not available and substitutes will be offered if possible.
