The Kent Conservation District is Now Accepting Orders for its Spring Seedling Sale

The Kent Conservation District is taking orders for its spring seedling sale through March 31, 2009, for delivery on April 18 and 19, 2009. The funds generated by this sale are used by the Kent Conservation District to provide the county with a wide variety of conservation programs, along with educational and technical assistance to its landowners.

The trees purchased through the sale also serve a valuable purpose. They are used in reforestation efforts and other conservation plantings throughout the county. For residential purposes trees beatify the home, raise property values and provide habitat for native wildlife. Trees also provide for many environmental benefits including soil stabilization and storm water control.

This year’s sale boasts our largest selection ever, with nearly forty species of conifers (evergreens), hardwoods and wildlife shrubs. We have also added native wildflower seed mixes, backyard composters, rain barrels and much more to our catalog. We can accommodate plantings from 10 to 10,000 seedlings. We also have options to fit anyone’s budget as well with ten seedlings starting at only $10 and 1,000 seedlings starting at only $225. The catalog and order forms are available online at: www.kentconservation.org. For more information please contact the KCD office at administrator@kentconservation.org or by calling (616) 942-4111 ext 100.
