Lake Lots

To restore or plant trees on lake lots, view What’s a Wildflower? What’s a Weed? For three riparian presentations. The first covers some helpful information on our native trees and how to propagate them.

Also view Edmonton Area Native Plant Suppliers.

Rural Land Owners

To plant lots of trees see the Alberta Agriculture - Prairie Shelterbelt Program or phone 1-866-766-2284.

This program is primarily set up for rural land owners of 5 acres (2 hectares) or more for minimal cost (delivery costs). Restore watershed and provide buffers zones on municipal lands in watersheds.

On the application, you also have to identify the purpose the trees such as; they will serveriparian restoration, provide buffer zones, etc.

The trees must be planted on the owners property and not used for commercial purposes. If you plan to plan on municipal property you must have permission from your municipality and details as to where the trees will be planted. There is a legal release to be signed.

More info can also be obtained from the 'ag reps' for the counties.

To see great information and pictures on the different prairie trees species see Alberta Agriculture's webpage on Trees and Shrubs for Prairie Shelterbelts.

Note: This site does have some non-native trees and shrubs that we are trying to replace in our watershed such as the Ross Caragana.

Please select the native plants such as, Cranberry, White Spruce, Balsam, Aspen. Willow and Poplar.
Happy Tree Planting!!

PS. Encourage others by telling and promoting tree planting efforts even if small in number.
