May 6, 2019 – About three million trees are expected to be destroyed by an Ontario nursery due to the scrapping of a provincial tree-planting program. Ferguson Tree Nursery in Kemptville was one of the main nurseries to take part in the program, but its CEO says he can't afford to pay for staff, supplies and operating expenses to run the nursery and maintain all the trees that are in various stages of growth.
