Bare Root Tree Planting Program

In efforts 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 (1 inch) in thickness and 5' to 8' in height will be made available. Trees are available ONLY to taxpayers of the Town of Carleton Place and must be planted within Town limits.

Remaining species available are:

Large Trees:

  • Bur Oak
  • Hackberry

Smaller Trees:

  • Honey Locust
  • Showy Mountain Ash

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 a limit of two (2) trees per household.

Residents must be aware there is only a two-week period this year to collect the trees from the nursery and no refunds will be provided for uncollected trees.  Public Works will announce in CP Scoop when the trees will be ready for pickup.

Residents must obtain locates from Ontario One Call (www.ontarioonecall.ca) 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 available virtually. Participants must be registered prior to the event.  The virtual information session is scheduled for Wednesday, May 3rd 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 and your name will be placed on the list. Residents must pay for their trees at the Carleton Place Town Hall prior to May 12th, 2023.
