Forests looking for good homes around Cornwall

April 5, 2017 at 11:02 am Leave a comment

With tree-planting season just around the corner Forest Ontario is offering landowners 50 million trees to fill in those empty spaces and the Cornwall area is being targeted as one area that needs some of those trees.

It’s easy to get on the list for trees, said Susan Moore for Forests Ontario and with Moore Partners Marketing & Communications.

All it takes is a call or email to the Eastern Ontario outreach co-ordinator, who in turn will take your information and contact the local field adviser. The field adviser will do a site visit and see if you are eligible for the program. In order to be eligible, the landowner must have 2.5 acres of open land.

The 50 Million Tree Program provides both funding support to cover up to 80 per cent of the total planting costs and technical assistance. A local planting partner will work with the landowner to develop a site plan, do the planting and conduct follow-up assessments in subsequent years.
