Every spring the Niagara County Soil & water Conservation District sells DEC-raised saplings for local residents to plant for use in conservation projects and lawns. Over 60,000 trees are distributed across the county on an annual basis. The trees will be available in late April but you have to order them before March 1st.
It's a really great program for two reasons...
It gives you access to many different species of trees and shrubs
suitable for a wide variety of soil. So, there are trees available for any
conservation project you may have like creating a hedgerow, planting
foodstuff for birds & mammals, starting a woodlot, stifling erosion,
improving your lawn and more.
2) It's cheap. You could never buy
these types and amounts of trees from nurseries or online without paying an
arm and a leg. These trees are a great buy.
The order form is available in their Winter 2017 newsletter which can be downloaded here:
