It is already time to start thinking about those trees you want to plant this spring as the Scott Soil and Water Conservation District’s annual tree sale has begun!
This is always a great opportunity for residents to add high-quality, low-cost natural plantings to their yard or acreage. There are 32 varieties of trees and shrubs for sale. New trees this year include Pin Cherry, False Indigo, Norway Spruce, Black Walnut, and an Emerald Ash Borer resistant Mountain Ash. Rain barrels, native seed mixes, and tree supplies (mats, spades and marking flags) are also for sale.
Scott SWCD is again offering the “Backyard Bundle,” a great choice for residents who live in the city or on smaller rural lots. It includes five different varieties in one bundle of 25, including Paper Birch, Black Hills Spruce, Highbush Cranberry, Lilac, and Red Osier Dogwood. All other varieties are sold in bundles of 25.
All varieties thrive in Minnesota’s various soil types and climate. The sale began this month and continues through April, at which time customers may pick up their pre-paid orders and buy smaller bundles of any remaining seedlings at the Scott County Fairgrounds, in Jordan. Put in your order early to insure the species you want are available.
