Ordering Tree and Shrub Seedlings

Attention 4th grade teachers: We will begin accepting Arbor Day free tree orders in mid-November. Please wait to order tree seedlings until then.

Check the seedling inventory for current species in stock. See the stock descriptions for seedling sizes. If a desired species is unavailable through the state nursery, you may wish to contact a private nursery.

You can place an order online or with a paper form. Mail or email all completed paper forms to Carey Skerven.
