Adams County Conservation Districtís annual tree seedling sale

(3/1) Native containerized plants, bareroot seedlings and transplants may now be ordered from the Adams County Conservation District for its 2017 Tree Seedling Sale. Pick up date is Thursday April 27 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the pole building behind the Ag Center at 670 Old Harrisburg Road, Gettysburg. The Adams County Conservation District tries to balance its offerings for the smaller land/homeowners as well as the larger landowners and those in CREP (Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program). We look for native offerings that are the largest sizes and best prices.

New this year is the gallon containerized pussy willow (Salix discolor). Bareroot hardwoods are red oak, swamp white oak, American sycamore or planetree, river birch, red osier dogwood and Eastern redbud. The evergreens (seedlings and transplants) are Eastern white pine, Norway spruce, Colorado blue spruce and Douglas fir.

Bluebird nest boxes and two-chambered bat boxes will not be available for pre-order through the tree sale this year but they are available at the District office throughout the year. A limited amount of rain barrels should be available for purchase on the day of pickup for $50 per barrel, however, you may also purchase them throughout the year at the District.
