Do you have an empty spot in your yard that’s just begging for some landscaping? Want to add color, natural beauty, and be environmentally friendly on your property? The Scott SWCD wants to help!
The Scott SWCD is hosting its annual tree sale once again, and orders open for sale on January 1. Order forms will be open until the beginning of spring, but the best time to order your trees is as soon as they go on sale!
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 wild Minnesota weather. Native trees are specially adapted to our local weather conditions. Among their many benefits, native trees require far less water than tropical trees—saving you time and money. They also provide habitat for birds and other wildlife, and prevent invasive species from spreading.
There are 24 varieties of trees and shrubs for sale, including 7 conifers, 9 deciduous trees, and 8 deciduous shrubs. The same will also have backyard bundles—a mix of five tree species—native seed mixes, rain barrels, and tree supplies (mats, spades, tree shelters and marking flags) also for sale. Last year, the SWCD sold a whopping 28,500 trees, so 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 24—Arbor Day! Pickup is at the Scott County Fairgrounds in Jordan. Put in your order early to insure the species you want are available.
