Send a link to a friend

[FEB. 13, 2007]  The Logan County Soil and Water Conservation District will sponsor a tree sale program again this year to encourage more tree planting. The trees may be used for any purpose and planted in town or country. Some uses are windbreaks, timber production, wildlife cover, Christmas trees and ornamental planting.

Evergreen species being offered this year are white pine, Canaan fir, Norway spruce, Colorado blue spruce and Douglas fir. Hardwoods, ornamentals and shrubs being offered are red maple, sugar maple, red oak, white oak, green ash, river birch, black walnut, eastern redbud, white flowering dogwood, red osier dogwood, silky dogwood and high-bush cranberry.

The evergreens will be sold in bundles of 25, and the hardwoods will be sold in bundles of five. These trees will be sold at a cost of approximately $1 each. If you cannot use 25 trees, you might want to combine your order with a neighbor. Individual trees may be purchased at a cost of $2 each.

Marking flags will be sold. These flags may be placed by the trees to help locate them for mowing. A two-year time release fertilizer tablet is also available. Orders will also be taken for tree protectors. These are corrugated plastic wraps that protect the tree from deer, rodents, weather and mowers. The wraps promote straighter and faster growth.

Trees are scheduled to be delivered in April. You will be notified as to the exact date for pickup. Please call the district office at 732-2010, ext. 3, or stop by the office at 1650 Fifth Street Road, Lincoln, for more information and an order form. Deadline for ordering trees is March 2.
