Crow Wing SWCD hosting annual tree, plant pre-sale

Crow Wing Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) is hosting the 14th annual SWCD Tree and Plant Pre-Sale. The SWCD has easy-to-plant, bare-root trees and shrubs, plus plants and seeds for every condition — wet, dry, sun or shade.

Pines make great wind breaks. For a wet site, plant balsam or tamarack. Norway and Jack pine grow in dry, sandy soils. Moist and dry soils are good for white pine or spruce.

Perennial kits are also available for a special project, ready to pick up and plant just before Mother’s Day.

Deadline for ordering is March 1. Pay with credit card, check or cash. Pick up May 1-3 at the Northland Arboretum in Brainerd.

For pre-order form and more information, visit, email or call the Crow Wing SWCD at 218-828-6197.
