2021 Urban Tree Planting Programs

For the 49th year, the Town of Truro will be helping citizens' plant new trees within the urban forest, offering two separate urban tree planting programs:

#1. Tree Planting Rebate Program

The rebate program is to encourage town residents to plant larger stock trees. 

Residents wishing to apply for a rebate of up to $50 per tree toward the purchase price of trees they have purchased and planted can do so at any time between May 1, 2021 and September 30, 2021. Applications will be processed on a first come, first served basis and rebates will be given toward trees of appropriate species (Canadian Plant Hardiness Zone 5 or hardier) until the end of the program deadline or available funding, whichever comes first. The rebate is for 50% of the purchase price of the tree, to a maximum of $50 per tree, and for up to ten (10) trees per property. For more information on appropriate species and to apply, contact the Urban Forestry Coordinator at 902-893-6071, or via e-mail

#2. DIY Tree Planting Program

The DIY Program is the sale of smaller, potted trees to Town and County residents alike.

The "Do It Yourself" project (DIY) planting program includes a large selection of trees and shrubs for purchase, the majority being native to our Acadian Forest Region. These smaller 1-gallon potted trees and shrubs range in height from 25cm to 100cm, depending on the species selected.

Trees & shrubs under the DIY program are available for $10 each, taxes included! Orders will be accepted until June 18, 2021 and will be available for pick-up Friday, June 25, 2021 at the Parks, Recreation & Culture Dept facility located at 200 Willow St., next to the Needs store, from 10am until 2pm. Orders will be processed on a first come, first served basis and are subject to availability, as numbers may be limited at the nursery.

Written descriptions of the tree species being offered through this year’s program are included in the attached newsletter. Those with internet access may wish to visit the website noted at the end of each description in order to view an image of the tree.

To place your order simply fill out the order form below, or print one off the Town website and mail it in or drop it off with your payment to the Town Office at 695 Prince St.
