Please note that the barrels have scratches and small visible defects. Originally used for food storage, the barrels have been adapted for rainwater harvesting, offering a useful second life.


If you would like to obtain a tree or a barrel, you must order it online starting Tuesday, March 26, at 9 a.m. via the recreational activity registration module. To place your order, you will need to have your resident’s card with a valid recreational activities membership and a Visa or Mastercard credit card on hand.

A maximum of two trees and two rain barrels are allowed per household. The reservations will end on Friday, April 5, at noon.

Picking up your order

You can pick up your order on Saturday, April 27, between 9 a.m. and noon, at the Seaway Park parking lot (near the dog park, access from Pine Avenue). A bag of potting soil will be provided for each tree reserved, and wood shavings will be available in bulk (bring your own container).

Choice of trees

Ten deciduous and five coniferous species, ranging in size from 80 cm to 1.50 m, will be offered. (Click on the tree name to find out more about the species).

Planting trees

Bare root trees will need to be planted on the day of distribution to ensure their survival. Potted trees can be planted within 21 days, as long as they are well watered in the meantime. Municipal employees will do random checks of tree purchasers’ properties to make sure the trees have been planted in Saint-Lambert.
