2021 Tree, Plant and Trout Sales

Natural Resources Conservation Districts are dedicated to hosting their annual sales in support of the health and safety of their customers and in compliance with Vermont state COVID-19 guidelines. We will update this page on a regular basis to reflect changes to these events and current recommendations. VACD recommends reaching out to Conservation Districts directly with questions on specific events.

Annual tree, shrub, plant, and trout sales take place throughout the state of Vermont each spring. These events have a long tradition and are an excellent resource for native species planting, supporting local economies, and district fundraisers.

Franklin County NRCD

The Franklin County Natural Resources Conservation District has been holding a spring tree sale at least as long as our Board can remember – and that goes back to 1978! The primary goal is to make native trees and backyard fruit trees affordable and accessible in our community, and it is also a fundraiser for our conservation programs and education. A trout sale will also be held this year.
