Bare Root Tree Program

In an effort 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 6' to 8' in height will be made available. 

Species available are :

Large Trees

Showy Mountain Ash

The follow species are no longer available for purchase:

  • Autumn Blaze Maple – Sold Out
  • Courtland Apple – Sold Out
  • McIntosh Apple – Sold Out

With the Town Hall currently closed to the public, residents must submit payment prior to May 1st in one of the following manners:

  • Credit Card with a 3% surcharge (call 613-257-6200) , or
  • Drop off a cheque or cash at the Fire Hall (15 Coleman Street) in the drop box in a sealed envelope with homeowner’s name, address and trees species which payment is for

Trees will be available at the Carleton Place Nursery (7164 County Road 29) early May but must be collected prior to May 15th.  Any trees not collected prior to May 15th will become property of the Town of Carleton Place and will be planted in a public space.

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 are available ONLY to taxpayers of the Town of Carleton Place and must be planted within Town limits.

Residents must be aware there is only a two (2) week period this year to collect the trees from the nursery and no refunds will be provided for uncollected trees.  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.

Due to Covid-19 precautions, this year’s tree planting information session will be available virtually.   Participants must be registered prior to the event.  The virtual information session is currently scheduled for: Thursday, May 5th 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.
