Tree seedling sale underway

GREENVILLE – The Darke Soil & Water Conservation District is conducting its annual tree seedling sale until March 15. The 2-3 year seedlings are bare root stock and each tree is dipped into a preservative gel to keep roots moist inside a plastic bag and should be planted as soon as they are received. Seedlings are packaged in groups of five. An assortment of tree packets are for sale to urban and rural landowners. The plant varieties are selected for their popularity and hardiness in the Darke County area. This is an economical way to work toward establishing or adding to a wildlife area, to create a windbreak, or landscape.

The pickup date is set for April 2-5. Prices range from $5-$20 in packets of 5 to 20 seedlings. Call the Darke Soil & Water Conservation District, 548-1752, or stop by the office at 1117 S. Towne Ct., Greenville with any questions.
