Annual Tree Sale

Aitkin SWCD holds an annual tree sale where landowners can order bundles of various species of seedling trees.


About the annual sale

Looking to plant more native plants on your property? The Aitkin SWCD offers a selection of native trees, shrubs, and plants for sale. This sale usually opens in late fall and runs until sold out, usually in late spring. Orders will be available for pick-up in May.

More trees please

Planting native tree species can mean more than just landscaping in your yard. Many conifers and shrubs can be used to create natural windbreaks. The berries of native shrubs will attract pollinators and birds, and many can be used to create unique jams and treats in the kitchen. In time, many tree species can be harvested for lumber and other food products as a source of income. The breathtaking colors of deciduous trees provide variety and color to fall landscapes.
