Free trees for children

The ChariTREE Foundation tree planting program is open to all Canadian camps in 2013, including those that planted trees in previous years.

Ordering

By April 1, 2013, please contact your provincial representative (listed below) and place your order including the number of trees and the location where they will be planted.

You may chose to plant between 40 and 800 trees. Andrea Koehle Jones, Executive Director of ChariTREE, orders trees that are native to each province from nurseries across Canada; therefore, the seedlings are suitable for growing conditions in your province.

The trees are packed in packages of 20 in cardboard boxes.

Delivery

You will be notified by your representative precisely when and where the trees are available for pick up in your province (the date will be within the last two weeks of June).

Andrea’s commitment is to deliver the total order for each province to one location, which is chosen bythe provincial representative. Your representative will notify each participating camp of this location prior to submitting your order.

Each camp is responsible for collecting their order from this location or pre-arranging to pay for delivery to their campsite.

The trees may be stored in a dark, cool location for a maximum of two weeks before planting.

Your Camp Agrees To:

  • Promptly acknowledge the receipt of their trees directly to Andrea (This step is done online Camps that do not meet this obligation will forgo the opportunity to access free trees in future years).
  • Plant their trees with their campers within two weeks.
  • Water the seedlings if the weather is dry.
