EAU CLAIRE COUNTY LAND CONSERVATION TREE PROGRAM ORDER YOUR TREES NOW!!

If you want wildlife shrubs to fill a rural yard or that little niche between yard landscaping and forestry, here's a
great way to accomplish it at a nominal cost. Eau Claire County’s Annual Tree Program runs through January
31, 2016. You can purchase up to 300 seedlings from 27 different varieties of evergreen, deciduous, and
wildlife shrub seedlings. The conifers are sold in bundles of 50 and cost from $25.00 to $40.00 per bundle;
hardwoods and shrubs are sold in bundles of 25 and cost from $23.00 to $50.00 per bundle. Here’s what we are
offering this year:

CONIFERS
White Pine, Scotch Pine, Red Pine, Austrian Pine, White Spruce, Blue Spruce, Norway Spruce, Balsam Fir,
Fraser Fir, White Cedar & Tamarack

HARDWOODS
Red Oak, Burr Oak, Black Walnut, Hybrid Poplar, Sugar Maple, Red Maple, Silver Maple, White Birch, &
Shagbark Hickory

SHRUBS
Highbush Cranberry, Magenta Crab, Aronias (Black Chokeberry), Red Osier Dogwood, Nanking Cherry, Ninebark,
Hazelnut & American Plum

Please note, if you have "acres" of land to plant or you're landscaping a yard, you'll probably want to contact a
nursery directly.

If you're interested in purchasing seedlings for the spring and you’d like an order blank, either give us a call at
(715) 839-6226, stop by the Land Conservation Office (227 First Street West in Altoona), or download the form HERE

Please note: All orders are taken on a first come, first serve basis, and some seedlings sell out within the first few weeks. Orders will be available to pick up around the third week April. Two weeks prior to this, we'll notify you as to when and where.
