Fall Tree Planting Time
Now is the best time to plant new and replacement trees. For peak post-planting performance, container-grown trees are the best option.
Well-developed root structures and minimal planting shock, combined with locally grown native species, are key factors.
Those best-choice trees are available from the annual Soil & Water Conservation District fall tree sale.
Orders are accepted through Sept. 23; all trees and understory shrubs are $25 each. Choose from 24 species grown in three-gallon containers, ranging from American Plum to Scarlet Oak, to Elderberry.
A completed order form and full payment are to be sent to the Hendricks County SWCD, 195 Meadow Dr., Ste. 2, Danville, IN 46122. Make checks payable to Hendricks County SWCD.
Proceeds help fund local district programs including clean water and soil conservation efforts.
Call the district office with questions, (317) 745-2555, ext. 3.
A downloadable order form and species list is found at the district website, hendricksswcd.org/annual-tree-sale.
