Order forms are available here or at the County Office. Orders will be accepted until May 4th at 4:00pm. Completed applications can be returned to the County Office or emailed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Please do not include payment with your order. By ordering through the County, yours will be placed as part of a “group order”, so depending on number of trees ordered and species, discount pricing could be available. For example, if only 10 Colorado Spruce are ordered, the price could be $1.99/tree, but if 180 or more are ordered, the price could be $0.99/tree. PRICES LISTED ON TREETIME’S WEBSITE ARE NOT GUARENTEED PRICING IF ORDERED THROUGH THE COUNTY!

Eligible orders include farms, acreages, commercial enterprises, municipalities, golf courses, resort areas, woodlots and urban landowners. Construction of a shelterbelt is not necessary to place an order.

A tree planter and two staff will be provided free of charge to orders over 200 (no exceptions). The landowner will have to provide a tractor (60 horsepower minimum) with Pioneer hydraulics.

Tree species and information can be found at www.treetime.ca or contact Trevor Kerr, Asst. Agricultural Fieldman at (403)882-3211 or (403)740-9182 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
