2024 Bare Root Tree Program

To ensure the Town of Carleton Place’s tree population is maintained and enhanced for years to come, we are making trees available to Town of Carleton Place residents at a subsidized rate. For $25.00 (taxes included) a tree of 25mm in thickness and 5' to 8' in height will be made available.

Species available are:

Large Trees

  • Autumn Blaze Maple
  • Sugar Maple
  • Red Oak
  • Bur Oak
  • Hackberry

Smaller Trees

  • Serviceberry (Tree Form) (SOLD OUT)
  • Honey Locust
  • Showy Mountain Ash
  • McIntosh Apple (SOLD OUT)
  • Cortland Apple

Prior to selecting your tree, please consider the proposed location for the tree. Residents need to ensure it will have sufficient space and consider its size for the location in years to come. There are a limited number of trees available. Trees will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis and there is a limit of two (2) trees per household. Trees must be planted within Town limits.

Public Works will announce in CP Scoop when the trees are ready for pickup. Residents must collect their tree before Monday, May 20th. No refunds will be granted for uncollected trees.

Residents must obtain locates from Ontario One Call ( in advance of planting the trees. There is no fee for acquiring locates and obtaining locates can take two (2) to three (3) weeks to acquire all the necessary clearances prior to digging.

This year’s tree planting information session will be held virtually. Participants must register prior to the event. The virtual information session is scheduled for Wednesday, May 8th at 7:00 p.m.

Because these trees are subsidized, anyone who has their name on a tree list must attend (or have previously attended) the information session to be eligible for a tree voucher.

Residents must call prior to the session in order to be placed on a list for a tree. Call 613-257-2253 to have your name placed on the list or leave a message providing your name, address, telephone number and tree desired. Residents must pay for their trees at the Carleton Place Town Hall prior to May 17th, 2024.
