“The in-store drop-in at TSC Stores Orangeville is an opportunity to learn about tree planting projects on your property, financial incentives and how to care for your forests,” says Kate Hayes, Senior Manager, Restoration and Management at CVC. “We make it easy to plant trees on your land with full-service tree planting and subsidies that can cover up to 90 per cent of the cost.”
Most of the land in the Credit River Watershed is privately owned. Private landowners have a unique opportunity to enhance the landscape and care for the environment by planting trees. There are many long-lasting benefits to planting trees. They’re beautiful and increase property value. They offer shade, filter water, capture carbon, prevent soil erosion and act as windbreaks. They also provide wildlife with food and shelter year-round.
