Since 1993, Washington County Land and Water Conservation has encouraged local planting of native woodland and prairie species through county’s native Tree & Prairie Seed Program.
More than 1 million trees have been purchased over the past 20+ years. The division orders bare-root stock in large quantities, allowing the county to receive a substantial discount off retail prices.
Trees are packaged for individual orders. Pickup was held at the Washington County Fair Park poultry barn.
During the 2016 land conservation tree sale 38,000 trees were sold during the annual event.
