It’s that time of the year!
The trees are offered as a low-cost source of plant materials for wildlife, timber plantings, windbreaks, and other conservation uses. They are available to anyone without restriction. Because of their
low cost, Greene County Soil and Water cannot furnish replacements, nor can they mail or deliver the packets. You will be notified by mail as to when and where to pick up your order, normally in the middle of April. Weather conditions at the nurseries will determine when the plants can be dug and shipped to SWCD.
Please pick up your order promptly when notified. The remaining trees not picked up will be brought to the SWCD office the day after the original pick-up date. Remember, these plants are 1 to 4 year seedlings or 5 to 6 year transplants and average 8 to 18 inches in height. Most orders will fit in a regular-sized grocery bag. SWCD reserves the right to make alterations in packet content if orders far exceed the supply.
This year the Pond Cypress will be offered, a deciduous conifer and similar to the Bald Cypress but it tolerates wet soils better, and needles are scale like and more flat or angled toward the midrib vein. To see a full list of available trees please reach out the Greene County Soil and Water District office.
Orders must be received in the Greene County Soil and Water District office with payment by March 2, 2018.
