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.
