Online Store NOW OPEN!

The Town’s 2020 Tree Seedling Program is now open! By visiting our online store, Caledon residents, businesses and schools can order potted tree stock and bundles of seedlings to plant on their properties.

This program helps reduce the local impacts of climate change by absorbing carbon from the atmosphere which improves local air quality. It also contributes to expanding Caledon’s tree cover broader provincial tree planting goals. Since the program's inception in 2002, an estimated 185,372 trees have been supplied to private landowners in Caledon. Join us in expanding Caledon's tree canopy by placing a 2020 seedling order!

New this year, the Town has partnered with Forests Ontario 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 Forests Ontario’s 50 Million Tree Program.
