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:  Click Here


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: 
i) purchase 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 at 306-842-2433

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 included
Hybrid Poplars:  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.
In addition HELP has the following container root conifer tree seedlings available: 

Conifer Varieties:  American Elm, Scots Pine, Blue Spruce and White Spruce.

Lowest Maintenance Tree Planting Suggestion
The lowest 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.
