2017 SHELTERBELT PROGRAM
The 2017 Shelterbelt Program from
HELP's new 160 acre tree farm a few miles outside of Weyburn. HELP has
produced and harvested an unprecedented 600,000 container root tree
seedlings for the 2017 program.
Tree Order Form:
Type of Trees
I am pleased to inform that 100% of
the trees provided for the 2017 program are container root trees produced at
HELP nurseries at Weyburn. Container root seedlings are considered by many
to be far superior to bare root varieties for the reason that container root
seedlings can be transported and planted while dormant or while in full leaf
during the growing season. However, spring or fall planting are still
considered the best options. As
per promise, the HELP subsidized rate of $1.50 per seedling for shelterbelt
quantities of 300 trees or more combining all varieties ordered continues.
Price is $2.50 per seedling for global orders less than 300 seedlings. HELP
will not consider orders less than 50 trees global order. This helps to
protect smaller private greenhouse interests.
Methods of Ordering
There are several ways of ordering
trees. To order trees the public can:
on line at www.help-shelterbelts.com and
click on 'Store'
ii) download the application form
which can be manually filled out and faxed or emailed or mailed to HELP with
a cheque payment or with credit card information for payment.
iii) make a telephone order by calling HELP
Varieties of Trees
In this second year of utilizing 100%
HELP produced trees, HELP focused on sustaining our 600,000 tree production
of the fastest growing hybrid poplar and willow varieties only. These
Walker, Okanese, Hill and Assiniboine (and Northwest and Tristis for
internal production only)
Willow Varieties: Golden, Silverleaf, Laurel, Silver, Clump Shrub
Willow, Bamboo spreading shrub willow and
Pussy Willow.These varieties,
properly planned can create the quickest possible shelterbelt.
addition HELP has the following container root conifer tree seedlings
available: Conifer Varieties:
American Elm, Scots Pine, Blue Spruce and White
Lowest Maintenance Tree Planting Suggestion
maintenance tree planting involves planting the trees, then installing
plastic mulch film by machine that HELP can loan out (HELP also sells the
plastic mulch film) and lastly broadcast and harrow 30 lb per acre or more
of common creeping red fescue. Costs for the 50 lb of fescue for this is
about $109. Plastic mulch for this 2,000 meter (500 meter x four rows)
planting woudl be 4.33 rolls of mulch ...meaning 5 rolls of mulch at $192.50
per roll including taxes = $962.50. Alberta and Manitoba customers can
purchase mulch from vendors in their provinces to save on freight.
