The King Conservation District offers a variety of native trees and shrubs for conservation purposes, including wildlife habitat, windbreaks, hedgerows, reforestation and stream enhancement.
The plants are bareroot stock, which means they do not come in pots or burlap bags, but are harvested from the field in winter when the plants are dormant and ready to be replanted.
Bareroot plants are affordable, hardy, have well-developed roots, and are easy to handle, transport and plant.
Order bareroot native plants online for pick-up on Saturday, March 1, 2014. Quantities are limited and some species may sell out, so please order early.
