The Essex County Soil and Water Conservation District is now holding its annual seedling sale. Available is a large selection of bare-root tree and shrub seedlings and transplants for erosion control, wildlife habitat improvement, windbreaks and reforestation. Groundcovers and wildflower seed mixes can also be purchased.
The tree and shrub seedlings and transplants are sold as bare-root stock. They are not potted, nor balled in burlap; such as you’d expect to buy from a commercial nursery.
March 8 is the deadline to place an order and guarantee your variety. Orders will be available for pickup April 19 in Westport. To get an order form or more information check our website - essexcountyswcd.org, or call: 962-8225 weekdays, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, go to co.essex.ny.us, or come our office at the Cornell Cooperative Extension Center (second floor), 3 Sisco Street, Westport.
