Division of Forestry, Spring Creek High School and FFA tree sale

 

ELKO, NV – 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 materials at reasonable costs.

Plant materials are from the Nevada Division of Forestry Nursery in Washoe Valley and are selected for their adaptability to our region's soils and climate. There will be eight different species of trees, fifteen species of shrubs and sub-shrubs, seven grasses and two herbs available this spring. The plants come to Elko as container stock, making them easy to take home and transplant.

The tree, shrub, grass and flowering plant seedlings range in price from $5.50 to $15.00 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 April 14. Pre-orders are to be picked up on either Friday, April 22 between 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. or Saturday, April 23 between 8 a.m. – 10 a.m. at the Spring Creek High School greenhouse, nine miles southeast on Lamoille Highway.

Buyers wishing to see what some of the offered species look like in mature condition can request a guided tour, during regular business hours, of the Jordan Arboretum at the NDF Regional Headquarters in Elko.
