April 26, 2014: After the successful launch of the Greening Central Elgin program two years ago, the program has now expanded to neighbouring municipalities to help get more trees planted on the landscape - all under the new name of Greening Communities.

The Municipality of Central Elgin, City of St. Thomas and Township of Malahide, in partnership with Catfish Creek Conservation Authority and Kettle Creek Conservation Authority, are offering tree seedlings to landowners at an affordable rate to help "green" their property through the Greening Communities program.

"We saw an opportunity to build on the success of Greening Central Elgin by partnering with our neighbouring municipalities to provide affordable trees to landowners that do not have enough area on their property to do a larger scale tree planting project. Landowners across the three municipalities can purchase larger tree and shrub seedlings for only $1.00-$2.00/seedling," said Lloyd Perrin, Director of Physical Services for the Municipality of Central Elgin.

Landowners must order a minimum of 20 trees to qualify for the program. Species available include: White spruce, Norway spruce, White cedar, White pine, Red maple, Sugar maple, Tulip tree, White Birch, Sycamore, Eastern redbud and Red-osier dogwood. There are trees still available for this Spring.

For more information and to order trees, landowners can contact their local Conservation Authority.
