Tree sale set for Saturday

Posted

 Thousands of trees will be offered for sale by the Clark County Farm Forestry Association during an annual public sale set for Saturday, March 16, beginning at 8 a.m., at the Albertson’s parking lot, 2108 W Main St., Battle Ground.

Trees will be priced $1 to $3, including varieties of fir, cedar, pine, spruce, alder, and maple.

Most trees available at the sale will range in size from 6 inches to 3 feet tall.

Members of the Master Gardener program of Washington State University will be on hand to answer questions about planting and caring for trees.

The Farm Forestry Association, an organization of timber tree farmers, recommends that trees be planted as soon as possible. Trees should be stored in a cool, shady place with roots kept wet until planting.

About 11,800 trees were sold in last year’s tree sale which ended about 11 a.m. when all trees were sold out.

Proceeds from the public tree sale support forestry-oriented projects as well as scholarships.

More information is available by calling Gene Jones, 263-3168, or Bob Brink, 686-3514.
