McKellar Tree Planting Program 2024 Store
The McKellar Environmental Committee and the Manitouwabing Lake Community Association, (MLCA), would like to thank one and all for the success of our fourth McKellar Tree Planting Program. Over 6,000 Native trees and bushes have been planted by over 200 different individuals. Included were White Pine, Balsam, Hemlock, Silver Birch, Mountain Ash, Silver Maple and Nanny Berries.
Seedlings were offered to all township ratepayers at bulk prices, with no minimum orders required. The program continues to run smoothly, with relatively few glitchess.
For the coming year, we are extremely fortunate to have Chris Clayton on board, our expert advisor and landscape architect. Chris and his wife took it upon themselves to walk all the roads of our Township that lead to the water. They have definitely put some roots down in the area. Chris has created a Re-wild Guide to assist you in choosing plants that are appropriate for our area. The Guide also provides choices that are useful for a variety of property types. Pictures of the plants can be seen in our Store Catalog.
The plants for 2024 were ordered in bulk from the nursery in September 2023. The Store is now open for browsing. The Store will open for sales on January 2, 2024. You can purchase items anytime up to the middle of May while quantities last.
See you in the Spring!
