2020 Annual Tree Sale
"Green Up Onondaga County"
Thank you to all who ordered trees this year. We appreciate your support of the program! See you next year!
Please note that this year we are accepting cash or check only.
Since 1976 the Onondaga County Soil & Water Conservation District has offered an annual tree and shrub sale as a public outreach program. We sell a variety of bare root evergreen and deciduous seedlings to be used for effective conservation purposes.
These products are not intended for resale. Grown by a private New York nursery, the trees and shrubs provide the homeowner with economical conservation materials to establish windbreaks, reforest parcels, prevent soil erosion and create suitable wildlife habitats.
Conifers are evergreen trees - pine, fir, spruce, cone-bearing trees. The conifers are transplants, which means the seedling has been transplanted from its original seed bed at least once, making for a more mature root system and adding a greater chance for survival. Sizes will vary from one species to another. These transplants are mature enough that they already have an established tree shape.
Deciduous trees lose their leaves, usually in the fall and become dormant during the winter, ex. maple tree. You'll notice the choice of deciduous trees has been reduced to just four species - American elderberry, sugar maple, white oak and white flowering dogwood. We increased the variety of conservation pacs, perfect for a smaller garden.
The Conservation pacs are carefully selected by the nursery, 2 each of 5 different plantings, plants that are compatible for a specific setting (shade or full sun).
Fertilizer tablets and marking flags are sold year round at the District office, 6680 Onondaga Lake Pkwy, Liverpool, NY.
Bluebird and bat houses also are sold year round, built by the Industrial Arts students at Tully High School.
