Did you lose some trees from the winter storms or bark beetle damage? Want to add some color to your garden in these grey winter months? Or enhance your streamside vegetation to protect your land from high water?
The Hood River Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) is taking orders now through March 20 for its annual native tree and plant sale. A variety of native conifers, deciduous trees and shrubs are offered
“We’ve got a great selection of native plant species at fantastic prices,” said Kris Schaedel, Conservation Technician.
Native plants are adapted to the unique climate and soils of the Hood River valley. They require less water, fertilizer and other inputs to maintain, and provide enhanced wildlife habitat, soil stabilization and water conservation.
These bare-root seedlings are 1-2 years old and will be delivered to the SWCD in early April of 2015. The orders will be filled in the order in which they were received.
Go to www.hoodriver-swcd.org to download anorder form and gather information on plant descriptions and site suitability. Orders can be placed by mail, e-mail, or phone (541-386-4588).
You can also stop by the office at 3007 Experiment Station Rd. in Hood River, for more information or guidance when making your selection.
Purchases will be available for pick up on Friday and Saturday, April 3-4.
