ELKO, Nev. — Spring Creek High School and the Silver Sage FFA Chapter are once again holding their annual tree sale fundraiser to bring northeastern Nevadans a wide selection of conservation plant material at reasonable costs.
The tree and shrub seedlings range in price from $3.25 to $4.50 each, depending on the size of the seedling and container. Plants are for conservation purposes on at least one acre of land.
Plants are sold on a pre-order basis only. The deadline to place a pre-order is May 10, 2012. Pre-orders are to be picked up on either May 18 or 19 at the Spring Creek High School greenhouse, nine miles southeast on the Lamoille Highway.
Order forms and a list of the plants with associated costs, can be obtained by visiting the Nevada Division of Forestry website http://forestry.nv.gov/ndf-state-forest-nurseries/trees-on-wheels-program/, or by contacting:
