The Saskatchewan Association of Watersheds is selling tree seedlings this year as part of our Saskatchewan Tree for Life Program. We are a non-profit organization working towards healthy watersheds! Your purchase will help to support programs and projects that improve water quality in our lakes and rivers, provide and sustain wildlife and aquatic habitat and provide public education awareness on improving the natural environment.
Tree ordering is now closed. It will reopen February 2023.
Delivery of trees will be coordinated through your local watershed stewardship group. The watershed group will notfiy you with tree pickup instructions in early June.
This year, trees will be sold in bundles of 10’s when ordering. Each bundle of 10 costs $50.00. If you purchase 26 bundles or greater you will receive a 30% discount at the time of ordering. Tree sales are non-refundable and final sale.
Tree species being sold include:
- Blue Spruce
- White Spruce
- Hill Poplar
- Prairie Sky Poplar
- Sandbar Willow
- Pussy Willow
By planting trees we are building climate change knowledge and capacity to the public and at the same time reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Young trees absorb CO2 at a rate of 13 pounds per tree each year. Trees reach their most productive stage of carbon storage at about 10 years at which point they are estimated to absorb 48 pounds of CO2 per year.
