This is a popular event, typically scheduled the last Saturday in April each year.
The Arbour Day Tree Sale is held at the maintenance buildings at Sulphur Spring Conservation Area, off of Grey Rd. #10, south of Hanover (follow the signs). This once-a-year opportunity is available to local landowners looking to plant a limited number of trees in and around their yards.
There are numerous species available and prices range from just over a loonie (seedlings) to approximately $60.00 for landscape stock. The three sizes available include the following
* whips (4 - 6 feet in height) These are hardwood species just getting established - spindly in nature
* landscape stock - These are species anywhere from 4 - 12 feet in height - typically well-established trees
This event is a first-come, first serve basis. Doors open at 8:00am. The event continues until 12:00noon. Coffee and doughnuts are usually available for sale at the event.
