Spring is just around the corner...time for tree planting!

Posted in All Home & Garden

Jeanette Serfling, Administrative Assistant

It’s time to think about your spring tree planting needs. The SWCD tree program is in full swing offering a variety of bare root shrubs, deciduous trees and conifers and potted conifers. We sell good quality trees, but offer no guarantee of survival. Quantities are limited, so order your trees early for the best selection. Your order should be received at the SWCD office by Friday, February 22, 2013 and include full payment. Trees usually arrive in mid-April and purchasers will be notified by postcard or email about the days, time and location for tree pickup.

Other items available for sale from the SWCD include fertilizer packets, tree mats and staples. Available for rent are tree bars and tree planters to make planting easier and more efficient.

If you would like to order a tree or shrub not listed on our order form, please call our office at (507) 765-3878 ext. 3 and we can check availability from our supplier. Order forms are available in this insert, at the SWCD office in Preston at 900 Washington Street NW or online at www.fillmoreswcd.org. Descriptions of all the trees on the tree order form can also be found on the website.
