Living Snow Fences

A living snow fence is a barrier created by plants, shrubs and trees to reduce snow blown across roads.

Planting trees and shrubs is not only more attractive and more environmentally-friendly than building a wood fence, but also more convenient than putting up and taking down traditional snow fences.

Benefits of participating

When you take part in the Living Snow Fence program, everyone wins.

You...

  • Get free trees and shrubs!
  • Get year-round beautification and the plants help screen your property from the road.
  • Enhance your property.

We...

  • Work with you to pick the trees and shrubs that best suit your property.
  • Customize a planting plan.
  • Buy the trees and shrubs for you and do the planting work for free.
  • Improve road safety as the living fence grows.

Qualifying for a living snow fence

You'll likely qualify for a living snow fence if:

  • Your property fronts the west or north side of a Peel Regional Road.
  • You have approximately 30 metres of set back from the right of way.
  • You currently have a wooden snow fence(s) installed in the winter.
