“Stay Home, Stay Healthy” Native Tree Sale

~

Thank you for your interest in planting native trees on your property! Please fill out the form below or learn more by downloading our info packet.

~

Trees are younger and about 2-3 feet in height, though some species will be smaller.

Young trees may take longer to reach a height you consider “full-grown,” however, trees planted at a young age develop a better root system than trees replanted when they are older. This gives the younger trees a better chance of survival.

Links to all the individual files in the packet can be found at the bottom of this page.

 

~
Due to restrictions on our funding, the $10 price and free delivery are only available to Delaware residents within the Nanticoke River Watershed (some MD residents within the watershed my qualify too). The watershed covers most of western Sussex County and small areas of Kent County south and west of Harrington. Click here to check your watershed address.

** YOU MUST PRINT DOUBLE-SIDED AND HAVE “FLIP ON SHORT EDGE” CHECKED. If you do not do this, the brochure will not function as intended. “Flip On Short Edge” is NOT the default option when you select double-sided printing, so be sure to turn it on before you click print. Our new brochure was originally designed to be printed on much larger paper (15.5 x 8.5). Try printing on Legal Size paper for a larger image. We suggest using an X-acto knife to cut the fine details but make sure to offer help to younger participants. **
