Switch to a Living Snow Fence

Snow fences break the wind to reduce snow blown onto roads. Planting trees and shrubs is more cost-effective than installing traditional wooden snow fences that need to be removed each spring.

Why Take Part?

Free trees and shrubs! You get natural property enhancements that help shield road noise. The Region and its partners cover the cost of naturalization and reforestation for your help in supporting our winter roads maintenance effort. We use less salt to keep roads clear and improve driving conditions. You beautify and enhance your property!

What's Involved?

We identify species of trees and vegetation ideal for your land. You have input on the selection of trees, shrubs and the customized planting design. We do the planting and work with you throughout the process.

How Does Your Property Qualify?
  • Your property fronts the west or north
    side of a Regional Road in Peel.
  • You have at least 30 metres of set back
    from the right of way.
  • You currently get wooden snow fences
    installed for winter.
