 Our programming and research innovations are growing with each passing year. 

Due to increasing demand we have created our largest stock ever of golden, acute, laurel, silver leaf willow and shrub willow. In hybrid poplar we have achieved good production of four principal varieties of Okanese Poplar and Tristis Poplar ( both fuzzless and equal to the very fastest growing), Walker Poplar (a bit of fuzz, very fast growing and extremely bushy against the ground) and Hill Poplar (a tiny bit of fuzz but the most drought and cold resistant).

We are happy to announce we have greater stocks than ever of Velosa and Common Lilac.  We have finally introduced the drought hardy carigana to our shrub supply. 

We are also offering potted saplings of the following: Tristis and Okanese Poplar (3 to 5 ft), Laurel Leaf Willow (good calibre stem diameter and 3 to 4 feet tall).  Golden and Silver Leaf Willow potted saplings at 4 to 7 ft tall.  We also have three year old potted white spruce and Scot's Pine.

Irrigation Systems: We supply DIY full systems of 1/2 inch drip line with pre-installed emitters as well as 3/4 inch and 25 mm drip lines for punch and pop in emitters for larger shelterbelts requiring sustained water pressure over longer distances.

Pick Up Customers Paid by HELP who transport and handover  other customer trees enroute

HELP will pay any pick up customer who agrees to delivery trees of one or more other customers who are enroute or at the destination of the pick up customer. Tree handover is typically at major fuel stations along the way or any other handover location agreeable to both parties. These deliveries are typically same day deliveries and the trees arrive the happiest because they are transported in open containers unlike courier company deliveries and trucking.

Two Ways to Order:

i) Online Ordering

Go to and click on"store"

Under Notes to Seller Write: I would like: "Weyburn Pick last wk of May through 12th of June" or "Please Ship last wk May through 1st 12 days of June" (only write ONE option) . If picking up do NOT fill in any shipping address. If you require your trees at a time different from these dates we can usually accommodate. NOTE: Container root trees establish best when in full leaf but if you want them earlier than last week of May we will work to accommodate.

Note that container root trees can remain healthy and growing in the containers you receive them in for several weeks maintaining not more than 1/2 inch of water in the bottom of the open shipping containers! Lilacs and carigana prefer less water during live storage..just keep them moist.

ii) Telephone Ordering

We will need: your name, telephone number, email for follow-up receipt, credit card information, name town and city nearest your residence and your preference for shipping or Weyburn pick-up. Please order on line if possible but by phone if you prefer.


Planting Advice

Deep, fine till your soil to garden texture. You should sink up to your ankles if the soil is well prepared.

Plant your seedlings deep! ie: the full root plus at least two inches of the lower stem underground for ALL seedling types.

Give one good heel kick per seedling (45 degree angle kick three inches away from seeding in direction of seedling) to ensure the seedling is sealed and the heal kick creates a one liter water well near the base of the seedling. If you pull on the seedling tip after planting it should break off rather than pull out of the ground if planted properly deep and heel/sealed.

Shovel out one spadeful of earth four to five inches deep about 4 inches away from each seedling on any side. Our newest research shows that this simple practice can increase both establishment rate by an extra ten percent and can triple growth rate for sites with no consistent irrigation. 

For planting trees by hand, ideally, place a 24 x 24 inch plastic mulch pad (you can make out of a heavy duty black garbage bag for piece of grain bag over each seedling with a 2 inch x 2 inch plus sign cut into the middle of the plastic that goes over the tree. Bury the outer two to three inches of the edges of the plastic.

Place a first size or larger stone on top the plastic pulling it down into your heel print you created when you 'heel kicked' a couple inches away from the tree seedling. Place a finger or screw driver hole in the plastic under the stone at the bottom of the depression. The stone creates a funnel in the plastic so rain water or irrigation draws water down to water the tree seedling.


Water each seedling ten liters (2 Gallons) once per week that it does not rain. Do NOT water more than 10 liters per seedling and not more frequent than once per week. All tree seedlings and especially ones such as lilac and carigana can die by too much watering!


For tree seedlings planted in spring, summer or fall to the end of October just befor freeze up its a great idea to give the trees one last good watering. This prevents root dehydration during open snowless winters and the ice crystals around the root prevents deep freezing of the roots especially for evergreens that are more susceptible to winter harm. Try to ensure snow cover over spruce and pine particularly to guard against winter wind and cold damage to evergreens.


Applying Plastic Mulch Film (4 ft wide x 1,500 ft rolls)

HELP strongly suggests you use the thickest mulch plastic available to avoid damage by deer perforating the plastic. Your first defence is to have your land finely worked like a garden so that the plastic lays very flat against the ground! Plastic mulch rolls purchase: due to prohibitive shipping costs for shipping plastic mulch rolls outside of Saskatchewan, HELP recommends you purchase these heavier items from plastic retail suppliers in your province i.e.: You might consider Jeffries Nurseries in Portage, Manitoba or Earlies Home and Garden in Saskatoon.  For pick up mulch purchases from HELP, we produce the thickest plastic mulch in Canada at 3.2 mil.   Out website explains a profoundly simple way beginners can be 100% accurate in pulling trees from under the plastic for mechanized mulch laying.
