Fall is a great time to plant new and replacement trees and the local Soil & Water Conservation District is taking orders now for container-grown natives.
Review the species list and place orders now through Sept. 25 at the Hendricks County SWCD, 195 Meadow Dr., Ste. 2, in Danville; through email to email@example.com; or facebook.com/hendricksswcd.
Container-grown trees and shrubs will continue growing until winter. Established root systems resume growing quickly in the spring.
Each tree and shrub are locally grown and priced at $25. Orders can be picked up at the county fairgrounds; buyers will be informed of pick-up date and time.
Call the SWCD office, (317) 745-2555, ext. 3, with questions.
Species descriptions are readily available at a variety of web pages including the University of Connecticut’s http://www.hort.uconn.edu/Plants/list.php
