2020 Tree, Plant and Trout Sales

COVID-19 Update: 03/25/2020

As COVID-19 spreads in Vermont, we are updating this page on a regular basis to reflect changes to these events and current recommendations. VACD recommends reaching out to districts directly with questions on specific events.

Annual tree, shrub, plant, and trout sales take place throughout the state of Vermont each spring. These conservation district events have a long tradition and are an excellent resource for native species planting, supporting local economies, and district fundraisers. See below for details on this year’s sales :

Essex County NRCD

We currently do not hold our own regular tree sale, but we do have stock available for purchase. We pull trees in April and October and can organize purchase and delivery of orders around that time. Please contact us for more information and for a species/price list.

  • For more information and to purchase, contact Hannah Davie, Conservation Specialist, hdavie.essexnrcd@gmail.com.
  • All orders must be placed by April 15 for Spring and October 15 for fall.

 

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. In addition to our tree sale, (which includes native trees and shrubs; fruit and nut trees, vines and plants; starter Christmas trees; larger balled & burlapped trees; and wildflower seed) we also hold spring sales for backyard mushroom growing supplies and trout for stocking ponds. We are proud to source almost exclusively from Vermont and New York, with only occasional gaps filled by growers in other regions. This ensures the trees we sell you will be appropriate for our climate, and supports our local land-based economy. In 2018 we sold 5,300 stems of 46 different species to over 150 customers. Thank you for your support. We look forward to seeing you and your trees this year!

Orleans County NRCD

We offer a variety of bare-root plants, including fruit trees, berry bushes, native trees and shrubs. This year we are offering a selection of native trees and shrubs known for enhancing pollinator habitat. Planting on your property with these native plants can provide many benefits: tasty snacks for you and beauty to your land while protecting, enhancing or providing habitat to native pollinators. We also have bee nesting blocks and rain barrels for sale. Bee blocks are being made by North Country Career Center (NCCC) Agricultural Sciences Department students and all proceeds go to Orleans County Future Farmers of America. Use barrels to collect and store rain water from your roof to reduce flow volume and pollution to storm drains and surface waters.
