Tree Seedling Sale Order Form

Interested in our Annual Tree Seedling Sale? If you would like to purchase seedlings this year, please complete the order form and return it to us with your payment by August 31st. We will order the trees then; however, we will not pick them up from the nursery until early December. You will be notified of the pick-up date around the second week of December. We have an August 31 deadline in order to receive quality stock from the nursery and be guaranteed availability of certain seedlings.

Our goal is to continue to provide this opportunity for the public to purchase tree seedlings, at a nominal charge, for landscape and conservation uses on their farms and home sites. Thank you for helping us spread the word about the tree seedling sale by telling your family and friends. The proceeds of the sale are used for the conservation education activities of the District.

Let us know if you are interested in special rates for orders over 300 seedlings of one kind.

Please call our office (910-484-8479 Opt. #3) if you have any questions. Thank you again for your support of our Annual Tree Seedling Sale.
