Trees beautify our surroundings, help save energy and protect our waterways. For these reasons and others the Rutland Natural Resources Conservation District (a non- profit organization) is offering a spring planting program. All stock is bare-root and is being offered at a reasonable cost. It is necessary to plant bare-root trees immediately, in order to keep the roots from drying out. The Rutland Conservation District has been offering this program for over 20 years and has sold thousands of plants.
Some of what is available are: balsam fir, Fraser fir, Colorado blue spruce, white spruce, sugar maple, American cranberry, hazelnut, butterfly bush, spicebush, lilac, elderberry and apple, pear, and peach. Strawberry, blueberry and raspberry plants are also available. Orders will be taken until April 8, or until supplies last, so order early! This sale helps to generate funds to support the district’s many programs.
