Tree sales to benefit the land owner and conservation district
MIDDLEBURY — 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 ongoing 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, 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 3-4’ maples. Plums will not be available.
Sale proceeds help support scholarships for Green Mountain Conservation Camp, resource information workshops, and planting trees alongside streams.
To receive an order form detailing selection and cost go to ottercreekconservation.org/news-events/tree-sale or call (802) 771-3037 or e-mail [email protected]. Paper order forms are in the foyer of the farm service center in Middlebury.
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 1.
