The Native Plant & Tree Sale has begun for the 2023 season
Planting native tree species can mean more than just landscaping in your yard. Many conifers and shrubs can be used to create natural windbreaks. The berries of native shrubs will attract pollinators and birds, and many can be used to create unique jams and treats in the kitchen. In time, many tree species can be harvested for lumber and other food products as a source of income. The breathtaking colors of deciduous trees provide variety and color to fall landscapes.
Each species provides their own unique combination of food, habitat, and homes for a wide variety of wildlife. Click on the name of each shrub or tree below to see more information about the benefits, planting needs, and maintenance of each species.
We currently offer these tree and shrub species for sale:
- Red-Osier Dogwood
Wildlife Packet: 10 each of Juneberry, Chokecherry, Wild Plum, and Red-Osier Dogwood.
