The Otter Creek Natural Resources Conservation District is sponsoring its Annual Tree and Seedling Program for area residents. This program was developed for the convenience of area residents and proceeds help support on-going conservation projects.
Possible uses for the seedlings are home orchards, windbreaks, Christmas trees, ornamental, and wildlife habitat.
A partial list of trees and seedlings the district is offering are white pine, balsam fir, white cedar, white spruce, shagbark hickory, American chestnut, lilac, disease resistant apples, pears, a plum and a hardy peach.
Sugar maple, red maple and white oak are also available. This year look for a greater selection of blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and asparagus that thrives in heavy clay.
Butterfly and songbird packs will be back.
Sale proceeds help support scholarships for Green Mountain Conservation Camp, Conservation Field Day for all Addison County sixth graders, resource information workshops, and planting trees alongside streams.
Call 802-388-6746 x 26 or e-mail email@example.com. Orders will be welcome throughout April but those received by April 10 will get priority.
The District Tree Sale pickup will be held in Middlebury on the morning of April 30.
