Annual 2011 Tree and Shrub Program
The District now offers more than 55 species of bare-root conifers, hardwood trees, shrubs and groundcovers, as well as seed mixes and other products used in conservation projects. Packages range in unit size and price, from a bundle of 10 plants for as low as $10, to bundles of 100 plants for an average cost of $78. Some of the new selections for this year are: Blueberry, Ninebark and Black Gum. We've also increased our selection of multi-packs where homeowners can choose from 10 pre-packaged plant combinations that help accommodate common site needs. Rather than getting a pack of ten trees/shrubs of only one specie, multi-packs include two each of five different species; perfect for the suburban conservationist!
All plants are bare-root stock making them much easier to transport and plant. This is a pre-order program and the DEADLINE date for ordering is MARCH 18th, 2011.
Those interested may get order forms by logging onto the District's website: www.monroecountyswcd.org, by stopping into any Town Clerk Department in Monroe County or by visiting the link at the bottom of this page. You may also contact the County Soil and Water Conservation District at (585) 473-2120 x101, M-F from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. and they will fax, mail or email the forms to you.
