The Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation District is conducting its annual fall native tree sale.
This year 35 varieties of native trees and shrubs are available.
Trees provide many environmental benefits. Everything from providing oxygen to energy conservation, cooling shade to wildlife habitat, they also increase property values and have even been shown to help build a sense of community in neighborhoods and increase shopping traffic in business areas.
This tree sale focuses on species native to Indiana. Native species are those that have been growing in Indiana since before English settlement. These types of trees are uniquely suited to our soils and weather and are uniquely suited to support Indiana wildlife - especially birds, insects, and other pollinators.
All offerings are $26 each and will arrive in 3 gallon containers and be approximately 3-5 feet tall at delivery.
Pre-orders are required and are due Sept. 28. Trees can be picked up noon to 6 p.m. at the Hamilton County 4-H Fairgrounds Llama Barn.
Order forms and online ordering are available at www.hamiltonswcd.org.
