Saugeen Conservation's annual Arbour Day Tree Sale is a popular event, held typically the last Saturday in April.
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 12:00 noon. Coffee and doughnuts are usually available for sale at the event.
