Annual Tree Sale

Each year the District sells trees and shrubs, both conifers and deciduous types. We offer around 20 types of trees in bundles of 15 or 25. Orders are taken beginning in January each year with tree pickup dates in May.

Trees help reduce erosion, protect water quality, increase energy conservation, improve wildlife habitat and may increase the value of your property. If you have questions about what species to plant, or would like to be added to the tree sale list, contact our Forester, Beth Kleinke.
