2022 Details Released!
Details of the 2022 Tree For Life program have been released by the Saskatchewan Association of Watersheds, a non-profit organization working towards healthy watersheds.
Buying trees will help to support programs and projects that improve water quality in Saskatchewan lakes and rivers, provide and sustain wildlife and aquatic habitat and provide public education awareness on improving the natural environment.
Trees will be sold this year for $5 per tree when ordering 10-250 trees and $3.50 per tree when ordering more than 250 trees.
Trees are sold in bundles of 10 per species and there is minimum purchase of 10 trees. All sales are final and non-refundable.
For example, if you would like Blue Spruce and White Spruce, you would need to order at least 10 of each for a total of 20 trees.
Order online until May 1, 2022.
Trees will be distributed the first week of June by local watershed stewardship groups across Saskatchewan.
The Wascana & Upper Qu’Appelle Watersheds Association Taking Responsibility (WUQWATR) will notify you with your tree pickup instructions.
Tree species being sold include:
- Blue Spruce (SOLD OUT!)
- White Spruce
- Hill Poplar
- Prairie Sky Poplar
- Sandbar Willow
- Pussy Willow
The Tree For Life program was launched last year to educate and increase public awareness of climate change and to promote positive environmental impact by distributing and planting 24,000 trees across Saskatchewan.
Trees help mitigate climate change by sequestering carbon.
A young tree can absorb 13 pounds of CO2 each year, and approximately 48 pounds of CO2 per year at 10 years of age.
Trees provide habitat for wildlife and pollinators and are instrumental in reducing erosion and nutrient loading along shorelines resulting in improved water quality of lakes, rivers, and wetlands.
