Annual tree sale starting
MIDDLEBURY — The Otter Creek Natural Resources Conservation District is offering its annual Tree/Seedling program for area residents. This program was developed for the convenience of residents and for the support of ongoing conservation projects.
Possible uses for the seedlings are home orchards, windbreaks, Christmas trees, ornamental use, 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 and apples. Sugar maple, red maple, basswood, black cherry and white and red oak are also available.
This year look for a greater selection of blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, and asparagus that thrives in heavy clay.
Sale proceeds help support scholarships for Green Mountain Conservation Camp, resource information workshops, and planting trees alongside streams.
