Did you know that the presence of trees has been proven to improve the quality of our lives? Trees clean our air and beautify our communities. They reduce soil erosion and enhance the water quality of our local waterways. Trees can reduce heating and cooling costs and improve human health.
For over 40 years, the York County Conservation District has hosted an annual tree seedling sale. Each year, the Conservation District sells over 20,000 seedlings that are planted in York County and surrounding areas. The varieties available at the spring 2017 sale include native tree seedlings as well as fruit-bearing trees and shrubs.
Descriptions of the plants offered as well as the complete order form can be found on the Conservation District website at www.yorkccd.org. Orders will be accepted now through March 23, 2017. To order, please return the completed order form (including a check payable to YCCD or your credit card information) to York County Conservation District 118 Pleasant Acres Road York, PA 17402. Orders will be available for pickup at Rocky Ridge County Park between 10 AM and 6 PM on Thursday, April 13, 2017. Proceeds from the sale are used for the Conservation District’s education programs including the annual Envirothon county-wide school event.
Again this year, you can stop by for a free Blue Spruce or White Pine seedling on Thursday, April 13th at Rocky Ridge Park. Simply print the coupon posted on the Conservation District website and we will give you a free tree seedling to plant in your yard (one per person).
