Grow Your Legacy – Forest Planting for Large Properties

Own land in York Region? Start growing memories today for you and your family.

If you own two or more acres in York Region, we’ll plant a forest for you. Experts will help you every step of the way; from funding assistance, to planning and planting, to tending your growing forest.

We can help:

  • Plant a forest for you and your family
  • Connect or enlarge your existing forests
  • Plant along riverbanks or ravines

A forest is a gift that grows for generations. Funding for your forest is available and could cover up to 90 per cent of the cost.

Contact your local conservation authority to find out more and start planting your future forest.
