Trees give protection from wind for people and livestock, they trap snow and valuable moisture, and they provide a home and food for many wildlife species. Red Deer County has several programs that help County landowners plant more trees.

  1. Funding
  2. Tree Planting Equipment
  3. Tree Pruning
  4. Tree Health/Ownership
  5. Property Lines & Setback

Landowners may be eligible to apply for funding to plant trees for many purposes. The County's Conservation Coordinator, Ken Lewis, is available to help you access this funding through our ALUS program for agricultural lands, and Green Acreages for acreage properties.
