Kettle Creek Conservation Authority

Tree Planting

Kettle Creek watershed’s current forest cover is approximately 15%.  Environment Canada recommends 25% forest cover to achieve a healthy watershed.  To achieve this goal, KCCA is committed to planting a minimum of 50,000 trees per year.

If you’re thinking of planting trees, the KCCA stewardship team can assist you in a variety of ways including species selection, site plant development and providing information on available funding opportunities.

Looking to purchase trees?

Open to landowners in St. Thomas, Malahide, Central Elgin and Southwold. Minimum order of 20 seedlings.

Tree seedlings are available to landowners within the Kettle Creek watershed for $0.40/seedling. Minimum order of 200 seedlings, orders over 500 seedlings are eligible to be planted by the KCCA tree planting crew for $0.50/seedling.

KCCA’s Community Forest was initiated in 1999. Since then, over 200 people and occasions have been honoured through a Tree Gift.
