SWCD tree seedling sale


GREENVILE — It’s time for the annual Darke SWCD Tree Seedling Sale. Each year the Soil & Water Conservation District accepts orders for a variety of trees and shrubs that are native to Ohio. This year is no exception, they are offering 20 different species to choose from. Everything from hardwoods, evergreens, shrubs, strawberry and grape plants are available in limited supply. These packets offer a low-cost source of conservation plant materials that will provide food and cover for wildlife.

These two to three-year-old seedlings are bare root stock. Upon arrival, each tree is dipped in a preservative gel to keep the roots moist. All seedlings are packaged in packets of five trees. An assortment of tree packets are offered for sale to both rural and urban landowners. The plant varieties are selected for their popularity and hardiness in the Darke County area. This is an economical way to work toward establishing or adding to a wildlife area, creating a windbreak, or improving the landscape.

Payments must be received when placing your order. Prices range from $7-$18 per packet. All orders and payment must be received by March 22. Please note that supplies are limited and early orders will have best selection.
