Baby N.S.Trees Shipped Across Canada

Here’s where to order trees, pick up a price list or a free planting guide!

The Trail Stop Country Market sold over 3000 tree seedlings in 2009 for weddings, volunteer and customer appreciation and reforestation. We shipped these little trees right across Canada but Nova Scotians are our best customers!

Planting trees is one way to be kind to the Earth and the people who inhabit it, not to mention the economic plus of  ‘buying local’.  A % of tree sales is donated to the Bay of Islands Sustainable Living Center in Moser River, N.S.

Here are the two beautiful little seedling species we recommended for green weddings, Earth Day & volunteer appreciation events in 2009:
