Don't buy Dad another tie for Father’s Day, plant him a tree!

This Father’s Day skip the ties, socks, and such and plant a tree for Dad! The Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation's (RVCF) Special Occasional Tree Planting Program can make this happen!

The tree will be a living legacy that combats erosion, manages floods, keeps contaminants out of rivers and lakes, and more. You could say these hard-working trees are superheroes, just like Dad.

A single tree costs $25, while a small grove of five is only $100. Ten trees cost $150 and, a family grove of 25 trees costs $250 – just $10 a tree.

Online purchasing is fast and easy at Under the RVCF’s Special Occasion Trees Program, simply enter your donation amount and your information, and you’ll receive a charitable tax receipt to your inbox right away. You can even send your Dad an e-card right from the website. And next spring, the Foundation will get the trees planted and growing on your behalf – growing a living legacy to Dad. The RVCF plants and tends a combination of healthy, native, white cedar, white pine, red oak, and sugar maple— all strong, long-lived native species that thrive in the local Rideau Valley landscape.

The Foundation is a registered charity that supports the work of the Rideau Valley Conservation Authority, which monitors more than 4,000 square kilometres of waterways across 18 municipalities in Eastern Ontario.
