Spring Tree Sale 2018
Welcome to the Franklin County Conservation District’s annual spring tree sale!
We are no longer accepting orders for this year. Please check back again in January – February 2019. Please call 802-528-4176 with questions. Thank you for your interest!
If you have already placed your order, pick-up will be from 8:30am – 1:30pm on Saturday, May 5th at the Franklin County Field Days (294 Airport Rd., Highgate, VT). Any orders not picked up during that time will be forfeited; if you cannot make the pick-up time please make arrangements with a friend or neighbor.
When you come to pick up your trees this year, plan to stay and learn! At tree sale pickup this year we will have:
- tree planting and care demonstrations and information
- a sandbox-style, dynamic stream model
- a “rainfall simulator” showing rain’s erosive power on different soil, crop and lawn types
- farm equipment
- tree protectors, fertilizer pellets, and a limited amount of additional native trees and plants for sale
Thanks to the Missisquoi River Basin Association, Natural Resources Conservation Service, Franklin & Grand Isle Farmers’ Watershed Alliance, and UVM Sea Grant for making this day a festival of learning!
