Thinking spring already? You can get a head start on spring by ordering trees and shrubs from the Chisago Soil and Water Conservation District. Our 2014 tree and shrub order form is available on our website or at our office in North Branch.
We once again have bundles of five large-size species. These trees are 36 inches or taller. This year, the large trees are available for Basswood, Black Walnut, Hackberry, Red Splendor Crabapple, and American Plum. If you want to ensure availability of these trees, order as soon as possible. These are often the first species we sell out of.
There are many other species to choose from in bundles of 25. These trees start at 10-18 inches, depending on species. If you are looking for salt-tolerant species to plant along roadways, some great options include Black Hills Spruce, White Oak, and Rosa Rugosa. All of these species are available through the 2014 tree and shrub sale.
We also sell some gardening supplies. Each tree or shrub bundle, including the tree packet and the shrub packet, is $28 plus tax. If you order before February 21, you receive an early order discount of $1 off per bundle. This discount is only good on tree and shrub orders (it does not apply to supplies). To order, pick up an order form at our office, visit www.chisagoswcd.org, or call in an order with your credit card at 651-674-2333. Watch for order forms in the local newspapers.
