Native Tree Sale Opens Jan 1

The Annual tree sale is back! In April 2022 you can pick up Minnesota native bundles of tree sapling and wildflower seed mixes.

Orders open for sale on January 1 at scottswcdtrees.com. Orders can be placed until the beginning of spring, but it is best to place your tree order as soon as they go on sale to ensure your top species are in stock.

The tree sale is a great opportunity for residents to add high-quality, low-cost natural plantings to their yard or acreage. The trees consist of native species that thrive in all types of Minnesota weather. Among their many benefits, native trees require far less water than cultivar trees—saving you time and money. They also provide habitat for birds and other wildlife and prevent invasive species from spreading.

There will be 28 varieties of trees and shrubs for sale, including 6 conifers, 14 deciduous trees, and 8 deciduous shrubs. The sale will also offer wildlife bundles which are convenient mixes of 6 different tree and shrub species that have been selected to provide habitat and food for songbirds. Native seed mixes, rain barrels, and tree supplies (mats, spades, tree shelters and marking flags) will also be available for purchase. Last year, the SWCD sold a whopping 33,500 trees, selling out of most available species. Join the movement and watch your property take on a new dimension of beauty and conservation!

Orders will be available for pickup on Friday, April 29, 2022 at the Scott County Fairgrounds in Jordan. Put in your order early to ensure the species you want are available.
