2022 Tree, Plant and Trout Sales

All tree and trout sales are now closed. Check back in early 2023!

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.
