Conservation Tree Program
CONSERVATION TREE ORDER DISTRIBUTION
The Chippewa County Dept. of Land Conservation & Forest Management is sponsoring a Conservation Tree Program to encourage tree planting. A mixture of conifers, hardwoods, and shrubs are available for purchase as 1-3 year old bare root tree and shrub seedlings.
They are available in multiples of 10, sorted by the same tree or shrub species, with a minimum order of 10 seedlings and a maximum order of 300 seedlings.
Orders will be taken through March 31, 2017, with pick up tentatively scheduled for the last Friday April 21, 2017 at the Northern WI Fairgrounds in Chippewa Falls.
Tree and shrub descriptions, program guidelines, and the order form can be found on the Chippewa County website, under Land Conservation & Forest Management, http://co.chippewa.wi.us/government/land-conservation-forest-management (click on Conservation Tree Program) or are available at the LCFM office. For more information, call Lisa at 715-720-3643.
All proceeds will be distributed to local youth and conservation organizations to support environmental education and leadership training.
