The ‘trunk’ of our Setting Down New Roots Program is our annual fundraiser of seedling sales. Seedlings may be purchased and planted for numerous purposes including shelter, wildlife enhancement, aesthetic values, landscaping or for Christmas trees.
This seedling sales fundraiser has been in existence since 2000. The monies generated through sales are used to support the Manitoba Forestry Association & our educational programming.
Due to the number of requests received for a more centralized pick-up location, the Manitoba Forestry Association will now conduct its annual spring distribution at the Birds Hill Tree Nursery located just north of the Birds Hill Provincial Park.
Direction to the distribution point are as follows: Click here for map.
As you travel north on Hwy #59, drive 6.2 km past the west entrance to Birds Hill Provincial Park and turn right on Ashfield Road. At the fork in the road, keep right on Roscoe Road and continue 3 km. Turn right at the Bird Hill Tree Nursery gates.
