The Otter Creek Natural Resources Conservation District is sponsoring its Annual Tree/Seedling Program for area residents and cooperators. This program was developed for the convenience of area residents and proceeds help support on-going conservation projects.
Possible uses for the seedlings are home orchards, windbreaks, Christmas trees, ornamental, and wildlife habitat.
A partial list of trees and seedlings the district is offering are White Pine, Balsam Fir, Fraser Fir, White Cedar, White Spruce, American Chestnut, disease resistant Pears and Plums and a very hardy Peach. Sugar maple, red maple and burr oak are also available. This year look for a greater selection of blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and asparagus that thrives in heavy clay.
Sale proceeds help support scholarships for Green Mountain Conservation Camp, Conservation Field Day for all Addison County sixth graders, resource information workshops, and planting trees alongside streams.
