Over the past thirteen years, and with the support of hundreds of landowners, we

We cannot guarantee our Tree Planting Program will exist in the same capacity in

trees on their property.
The Kettle Creek Conservaton Authority (KCCA) is offering natve and Carolinian tree
and shrub species to private landowners in the Kettle Creek watershed. This offer
will focus on enhancing interior forest habitat, extending forest corridors and
creatng windbreaks and stream buffers within the Kettle Creek watershed.
Trees purchased through this program may be planted by the landowner or through
KCCA’s full planting service.
Trees have been preordered and for some species, limited quantities are available.
To ensure your trees are planted in Spring 2014, please complete your application
Please note this is a reforestation program, not a landscaping program, and the
trees must be planted in the Kettle Creek watershed. To have KCCA plant the trees
for you, you must place a minimum order of 750 seedlings with each species selected
in multiples of 50. To plant the trees yourself, you must place a minimum order
of 200 seedlings with each species selected in multiples of 50.
We look forward to continuing to work with you to improve the environmental conditions
of the Kettle Creek watershed. To obtain a detailed list of species available, to
order trees or shrubs or arrange a site visit, or to receive more information, please
