Despite the mini ice storm a few days ago – spring is finally in the air! We see it in the longer days and we hear it in the sound of songbirds. Spring is when nature comes to life – when trees bud, flowers bloom and animals become better acquainted with one another.

Spring is when people start thinking about planting trees, for aesthetic reasons and for their environmental benefits. We at CVC say go big or go home! If you have the land, why not plant a forest? Forests are amazing places. They support local wildlife and are needed for a healthy environment. Your own forest is something you and your family can enjoy for years and can even become a source of income.

We’ve been planting trees on privately owned properties for over 40 years. We take pride in providing quality service and make planting trees easy and affordable. In fact, we’ve planted nearly six million trees since we were established in 1954, so we know a thing or two about tree planting.

CVC’s planting services are available to landowners who have two or more acres of land available for planting. Our tree seedling program offers mostly evergreens and our potted plant program offers over 30 varieties of native trees and shrubs.

We can also help you stop the spread of invasive plants on your property. Controlling and managing invasive plants such as European buckthorn and garlic mustard will attract more wildlife to your property and improve the health and growth of your forest and natural areas.

Learn more about tree planting, forest management and invasive plant control at the Landowner Tree Planting and Habitat Restoration Services Presentation on April 2 from 9 a.m. to noon. The event takes place at CVC’s Forestry Operations Centre at 15526 Heart Lake Road, Caledon. Register today.

Spring is also tax time, so ask us how you can reduce your property taxes through the Managed Forest Tax Incentive Program (MFTIP).
