The Bur Oak (Quercus macrocarpa) is a vivid part of Winnipeg's historic urban sky-high canopy. The Hackberry (Celtis occidentalis) is a street-hardy tree from a little further east. Both are tough trees with terrific curb appeal.

Mature canopy spread:  18-25 m

Sunlight: This tree prefers full sun.

Highlights:

  • Popular with squirrels, nesting birds and other wildlife
  • Majestic dark green lobed leaves
  • Fall Interest: Coppery-bronze leaves with excellent crackle

 

Hackberry

Mature height:   12-15 m

Mature canopy spread:  7-12 m

Sunlight: Full sun is best for this tree, with a minimum of six hours of direct sunlight each day.

Highlights:

  • Sweet berries attract birds and other wildlife - you can eat them too!
  • White flower clusters popular with butterflies
  • Graceful vase-like canopy shape - similar to Winnipeg's American elms

NOTE: ReLeaf does not offer shipping and delivery. All ReLeaf trees must be picked up on October 8th, 2022 at the designated pick-up location on your order invoice.

We cannot hold trees past the designated pick-up date. If trees are not collected, they will be donated on your behalf to be planted in Winnipeg. Refunds are not provided.

During checkout, please indicate the address or approximate location where the tree(s) will be planted under "billing address". We do not share this information, but we like to keep track of where ReLeaf trees get planted. All trees planted in Winnipeg will be registered in the Million Tree Challenge.

Trees are 2-5 feet tall at the time of distribution. They are easy to transport, and most tree orders fit in a regular-sized car. Trees can sometimes be a bit messy, especially if they’ve been recently watered, so we recommend covering your car seat or trunk with a tarp or blanket.

Please note that we do not recommend you pick up your tree via bicycle; ReLeaf trees can be as tall as 5 ft so a vehicle is strongly recommended!

Tree Planting Advisory:

Don’t dig until you know what’s below. Disturbing the ground on your property to plant a tree can cause damage to a buried utility, which can result in costly repairs, injuries and even fatalities.

Trees should not be planted under powerlines.

Submit your utility location request at http://clickbeforeyoudigmb.com.

Plan ahead and allow for at least 3 full working days' notice before you plant your tree. This ensures underground utilities are marked, and you are digging safely.

ReLeaf Tree Care

It’s important to understand that young trees may not live their full lifespan if they don’t receive proper planting and care early on. Please make sure you watch our educational planting video - so you can correctly learn how to care for your tree from a certified arborist. 

Trees Winnipeg is a partner of the Million Tree Challenge. Let ReLeaf be your gateway to greening our city. All trees planted through ReLeaf must be planted in Winnipeg and will automatically be counted towards the Million Tree Challenge. The Winnipeg ReLeaf Program is a collaborative project between Trees Winnipeg, the City of Winnipeg and Tree Canada
