Tree Planting

ERCA is widely recognized for its forestry program. Since our inception, we’ve planted more than 6 million trees in the Essex Region. Trees provide natural habitat for wildlife, protect soil from eroding, and improve water quality. Trees can improve home values, and if planted in strategic locations, can reduce heating and cooling requirements. Projects can range from 1 acre in size to much larger restoration projects. Qualifying landowners can also purchase trees each spring to plant themselves, or consider our full service program.

ERCA has a comprehensive Landowner Grant Program to assist landowners with between 75% and 90% of project costs.
