Tree, seedlings sale orders due in April
ADDISON COUNTY — The Otter Creek Natural Resources Conservation District is sponsoring its annual Tree/Seedling Program for area residents and cooperators. This program was developed for the convenience of area residents and to support on-going conservation projects.
Possible uses for the seedlings are home orchards, windbreaks, Christmas trees, ornamental and wildlife habitat. A partial list of trees and seedlings the district is offering are White Pine, Balsam Fir, White Cedar, White Spruce, Basswood, Elderberry, Lilac, Apples and a very hardy Peach. Sugar maple, red maple and white oak are also available. This year look for a greater selection of blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and asparagus that thrives in heavy clay and a limited selection of 6-foot to 8-foot maples.
Sale proceeds help support scholarships for Green Mountain Conservation Camp, Conservation Field Day for all Addison County sixth graders, resource information workshops, and planting trees alongside streams.
To get a order form detailing selection and cost call (802) 771-3037 or e-mail [email protected]
Orders will be welcome throughout April but those received by April 15 will get priority. The District Tree Sale pickup will be held in Middlebury on the morning of May 2, which happens to be Green Up Day.
