The tree sale programme began in 1999, under the banner of the Mississippi Mills Chamber of Commerce. In 2015, thanks to the generosity of the Mississippi Mills Chamber of Commerce, Hub Hospice Palliative Care was able to carry on the legacy of this greening initiative as a fundraiser to support home palliative care services.
The trees we purchase are grown in a commercial nursery, shaped and root pruned while they are young. They are harvested in the late fall and overwintered in a climate controlled dormant state that mimics the outdoors. In the spring our tree order is shipped to us by overnight transport. Within hours they are packed in airtight bags with the proper amount of moisture ready for pickup.
Trees are expected to be available for pick up on Saturday, April 27, 2019 from 9:00am to 12:00pm. The pick up location is the Town of Mississippi Mills Municipal Garage, 3131 Old Perth Road in Almonte.
