Shipping Seedlings

Pick-up from the Nursery

Seedlings can be picked up from the Bonnyville Forest Nursery by appointment only.  Please call 780-826-1709 or e-mail and give at least 2 days’ notice.  Pick-ups Monday to Friday 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.

By Greyhound Bus

Orders fewer than 15 boxes can be shipped by Greyhound to your nearest depot.  They are shipped collect so the freight is paid upon pick-up or they can be shipped on the customer’s account.

By Canada Post

Orders can be mailed but the cost must be pre-paid by Boreal so a 10% administrative fee will be added to the invoice.

By Truck

If your order is greater than 15 boxes, shipping by truck is generally the most cost-efficient way to receive your seedlings.  There are two local freight companies: B & R Eckels Ltd ( and Grimshaw Trucking (  You can also contact a local freight company in your area and have them arrange the shipping.

We will provide the details (pallet dimensions, weight) needed for a freight quotation.  We prefer that the customer arranges and pays for shipping but if Boreal does so on your behalf, a 10% administration fee will apply.

By Boreal’s Planting Contractor

If Lite-Step Silviculture Services is hired to plant your seedlings, they will be brought to site by Lite-Step in specially designed insulated seedling transport truck boxes.
