CLEARFIELD – The Clearfield County Conservation District is now taking orders for its fifth annual tree sale. Trees play an integral part of our natural resources and provide years of pleasure for the humans and wildlife species that depend on them.
The species offered are suitable for many uses, including aesthetic pleasure, wildlife food and habitat, windbreaks, erosion control and stream buffers. Each year they strive to provide something different than the year before but still offer their old standbys like white pine, arborvitae, white and red oak and sugar maple seedlings. We are also selling a variety of fruit trees including apple, pear, plum, cherry, peach and nectarine. You will also find several shrub and small tree seedlings for sale such as American hazelnut and crabapple. Whether you’re looking for the showy flowers of the white flowering dogwood or the bird attracting berries of the wild black cherry, you’re sure to find something to suit your needs and interests. Their full color order brochure provides species descriptions and planting requirements and can be viewed and printed from their Web site.
All orders must be pre-paid and received by the Conservation District office by Feb. 22. Trees will be available for pick-up in late April. All proceeds from the sale will support local conservation efforts and environmental education programs in Clearfield County. To receive an order brochure by mail please contact the Clearfield County Conservation District at 814-765-2629.
