Shelterbelt Planting Program

Ordering your Shelterbelt

Interested in adding to, expanding or creating a shelterbelt on your property? The County of Stettler partners with Tree Time, to provide a Shelterbelt program. The County of Stettler coordinates the delivery of trees purchased by our citizens. The County handles the cost of all freight. Unfortunately, due to the loss of federal funding, this program is user-pay.

Plan Your Shelterbelt!
1. Go to Treetime.ca to look at all the possibilities and select your trees.
2. Contact the the County of Stettler at 403-742-4441 x3 for assistance.
3. Once you have chosen your trees, you may place and pay for your order at our Public Works Facility,
19561 Township Road 384
4. You must be available to pick up your trees at the County of Stettler, as soon as possible upon delivery. The County is able to provide a 'week of' date each year, that trees will be delivered - for your planning purposes.

TREE PICK UP FOR 2022 will happen during the week of May 9. You will receive a phone call as soon as the orders are ready for pick up.


Equipment

We are willing and able to assist in planning your new shelterbelt rows. The County of Stettler can provide a tree planter and two operators for planting 200 trees and more. This unit requires the land owner to provide a tractor with hydraulics and a driver.

We also have a plastic mulch applicator free for your use, you just need to purchase the plastic mulch. The addition of plastic mulch to your shelterbelt tree planting provides your trees with the best possible opportunity for growth. 
Plastic Mulch - Approximately $200/roll: Roll is 1500 feet long - there are no 'part' rolls available but you may split one with other shelterbelt planters.

If you have questions about our services, or would like assistance planning your shelterbelt we would be very pleased to help. Contact our Agricultural Services Department at 403-742-4441.
