There are 25 varieties of trees and shrubs for sale, including 7 conifers, 11 deciduous trees, and 8 deciduous shrubs.
Conifers are trees and shrubs that stay green all year-round. They have needle-shaped leaves and cones. Deciduous trees provide great fall color before shedding their leaves each fall. They also provide habitat for birds and offer shade and borders along boulevards and in your yard. Shrubs are also great providers of bird and wildlife nesting habitat, and many have attractive spring blossoms, usable fruit, and spectacular fall foliage.
Last year, the SWCD sold a whopping 29,000 trees, selling out of most available species. Join the movement and watch your property take on a new dimension of beauty and conservation!
Check out our Backyard Bundle! It is a convenient mix of 5 tree species that can be easily planted in urban or rural yards; the perfect package for properties less than an acre. The bundles are also specially tailored to attract wildlife and naturalize your property.
We also have stock of tree and planting supplies. If you need marking flags, or tree mats, spades, or tubes for your planting process, check our website for availability. Tree tubes have a 5-7 year lifespan, and they come with an oak stake, zip ties, and mesh bird net for stability. Tubes are sold in bundles of five.
Rain barrels are in stock! Rain barrels are an excellent way to collect rain from drain spouts. You can use that collected water to irrigate your yard, tend to your garden, or supply water elsewhere to your household.
2021 Featured Tree: PRINCETON ELM
New to the Scott SWCD tree species list, the Princeton Elm is tall, beautiful, and tolerant to urban conditions. Its average mature size is 50-70 feet tall and 30-50 feet wide and grows best in full sun. The elm is used as a great shade tree in residential yards, and will provide a beautiful yellow color in the fall.
It also exhibits a good resistance to Dutch elm disease and elm beetles.
