To The Editor,
Eastern Ontario municipalities participating in the South Nation Authority’s tree seedling giveaway are inviting residents to add a few trees to their property. Whenever possible, select your trees so they will thrive on your property. Make sure you know how big the trees will get as they mature. Keep in mind recommended distances to buildings, power lines, septic drain fields and your neighbours.
You will find useful information in a number of resources such as “Choose the Right Tree or Shrub” (https://arbres.hydroquebec.com/search-trees-shrubs). Tree Canada also provides a “Tree Planting Guide (https://treecanada.ca/resources/tree-planting-guide/). And you may want to check with Boisés Est ([email protected]).https://thereview.ca/2019/04/29/plant-and-protect-trees/
