About the Home Hospice North Lanark Tree Fundraiser
The Tree Fundraiser began in 1999, under the banner of the Mississippi Mills Chamber of Commerce. In 2015, Home Hospice North Lanark (formerly Hub Hospice Palliative Care) was able to carry on the legacy of this greening initiative as a fundraiser to support home hospice palliative care services.
This year we welcome the support of Reid Gardens in Carleton Place who have generously offered covered storage to keep trees and shrubs safe upon delivery until pick-up. They will also be supplying 1 x 30 liter bag of 3 way Planting Mix, and a 4.5 gram packet of Root Rescue (mycorrhizae) with every plant purchase. All tree inquiries should go to Home Hospice North Lanark at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The trees we purchase are grown in a commercial nursery, shaped and root pruned while they are young. Each spring, our tree order is shipped to us by overnight transport. Within hours they are packed in bags with the proper amount of moisture ready for pickup.
Trees will be available for pick up in the Spring of 2021. Exact date and time are to be determined.
New this year: The pick up location is Reid Gardens in Carleton Place, 140 Pick Road, adjacent to the Garden Center.
