about the tree sale
SCD’s Spring Tree Sale offers a variety of native trees and shrubs for conservation purposes such as wildlife habitat, windbreaks, hedgerows, reforestation, and stream enhancement. They also work great on home and garden projects.
A majority of the plants offered are bare-root stock. This means that they do not come in pots or burlap bags, but are harvested from the field in winter when the plants are dormant and ready to be replanted. Bare-root plants are affordable, hardy, have well-developed roots, and are easy to handle, transport, and plant. Order early for the best deals and availability. We do sell out of plants, so get yours today!
Online Ordering/ Phone-in Orders can be placed Monday, January 29th AT 8:00 AM - March 11th 2024.
Please note that we will not be taking orders before Monday, January 29th at 8:00AM.
Caring for and Planting Your Seedlings
Edible, May Not be Palatable
Storing Your Seedlings
If you must store your plants before planting, be sure the selected storage area maintains the correct temperature, has good ventilation, and plants will be protected from drying out, heating, or freezing. Remove the plants from their bags or boxes and keep roots moist and the tops of plants dry. Do not store stock near fresh produce or cut flowers, both of which release ethylene gas which is deadly to live plant material.
How big are the seedlings at the time of distribution?
The majority of our bare-root seedlings range in size from 3-24’’ tall, and unless otherwise indicated, are not potted and come in minimum bundles of five (unless otherwise noted).
An 8" seedling is grown in a greenhouse for one year. The 8" seedlings have an advantage to planting large quantities because they are much smaller and less labor-intensive.
Reforestation trees are available in 8" size, as well as Plug 1 size. The P1 seedlings, are a year older than the 8" seedlings and they are quite a bit larger, about a foot or taller and they have a larger caliper stem with some branching and a larger more extensive root system. A P1 seedling is grown for one year in a greenhouse and an additional year in the field.
We DO NOT ship trees.
Order pickup will take place on Friday, April 12th from 8am-5pm & Saturday, April 13th from 9am-3pm.

Early and late pickups are not allowed due to the availability of seedlings and the cost of seedling storage. Orders not picked up will be used by SCD for various planting projects and any payment will be forfeited.
Terms & Conditions
All tree/shrub species are sold as bundles of 5 seedlings for $12 unless otherwise noted. Mixing of species is not permitted.
The reason for this is to demonstrate our commitment to providing quality seedlings at a low price.
How & when do I order?
Seedlings must be pre-ordered starting at the end of January. Orders will not be processed without payment. Quantities are limited and orders are filled as they are received.
How do I receive my seedlings?
We do not ship seedlings. You must pick up your trees on the designated days for pick up. Orders that do not get picked up will be used by SCD for various planting projects and any payment will be forfeited.
Seedlings are dipped in a hydrogel to retain moisture before they are packed into your order. Your seedlings are then carefully placed into sealed bags for easy transport back to your planting destination.
