Trees are perfect for forest, not always best next to city home
Because these are native forest species, their ‘full size’ may not be appropriate next to your home on a city lot. DNR encourages you to plant trees, but put the right tree in the right place.
These forest seedlings have been kept refrigerated are healthy and ready to plant. Be prepared to care for the seedlings until they can be planted. They need to be kept cool and moist. Plant within a few days. For more information regarding seedling care, visit: www.dnr.wa.gov/Publications/lm_webster_seedling_vigor.pdf
Seedlings sold individually or 100-150 per bag.
|Noble fir ||790||$2.00||$75||$500|
In addition, larger quantities or species may be available at DNR’s Webster Forest Nursery in Tumwater. Check availability by calling toll free at 1-877-890-2626.
