GRCA Trees for Rural Roads Program

The Township of Hamilton is partnering with the Ganaraska Region Conservation Authority (GRCA) in 2022 to deliver the Trees for Rural Roads Program

Potted or bareroot whip tree stock is offered for free to eligible residents and must be planted by residents next to municipal roads on private property.

If you're looking for trees and shrubs to be planted elsewhere on your property, consider placing an order through the GRCA Tree and Shrub Seedling Program.

For more information on both programs and to apply, visit the GRCA's website.
