The ‘trunk’ of our Setting Down New Roots Program is our annual fundraiser of seedling & potted trees sales. Seedlings may be purchased and planted for numerous purposes including shelter, wildlife enhancement, aesthetic values, landscaping or for Christmas trees.
This seedling and tree sales fundraiser has been in existence since 2000. The monies generated through sales are used to support the Manitoba Forestry Association & our educational programming.
The majority of the seedlings are grown at the Pineland Forest Nursery in Hadashville, Manitoba. For more information on how the seedlings are grown, please visit the Pineland website at www.pinelandforestnursery.com.
Potted Coniferous Stock
The Manitoba Forestry Association also has selection of larger caliper stock trees in 1, 2 and 3 gallon pots which allow for a quicker and more dynamic impact on landscaping needs. Large caliper stock suits a wide variety of needs for those wishing for a more established tree.
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.
Distribution Location – Birds Hill Tree Nursery
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.
