Think Spring! Order Trees from Darke SWCD

GREENVILLE – Finally the winter freeze has thawed and nearly all traces of the most recent snow are history! These early signs of spring can only mean one thing, it’s time for the annual Darke SWCD Tree Seedling Sale. Each year we accept orders for a variety of trees and shrubs that are native to Ohio. This year is no exception, we are offering 21 different species to choose from. Everything from hardwoods, evergreens, fruit trees and other deciduous plants are available. These packets are offered as a low cost source of conservation plant materials which will provide food and cover for wildlife.

These two to three-year-old seedlings are bare root stock. Upon arrival, each tree is dipped in a preservative gel to keep the roots moist. All seedlings are packaged in packets of five trees. An assortment of tree packets are offered for sale to both rural and urban landowners. The plant varieties are selected for their popularity and hardiness in the Darke County area. This is an economical way to work toward establishing or adding to a wildlife area, creating a windbreak, or improving the landscape.

Payment must be received when placing your order. Prices range from $5-$10 per packet. All orders and payment must be received by March 27, 2015. This year we are also offering larger varieties of Colorado Blue Spruce and Norway Spruce trees.

Visit our website,, for more information, to place an order or print off an order form. Order forms are also available at our office located at 1117 Southtowne Court, Greenville, Ohio. If you have any questions or would like more information regarding this year’s tree sale, don’t hesitate to give us a call at 937-548-1715, extension 3.

Most packets will fit easily into one or two grocery bags. They are available to anyone and may be planted anywhere. To keep the cost low, we are unable to furnish replacements nor will we mail or deliver the packets. We reserve the right to make substitutions if necessary.
