Underwood Conservation District (UCD) is currently accepting orders for native conifer, hardwood and shrub seedlings and will do so until March 1.
Seedling pick up will be on Friday, March 22, and Saturday, March 23, in White Salmon, with the possibility of an additional pick up site in Skamania County.
Plants must be ordered in a minimum of ten per species, except for the mixed habitat bundles available. Large quantity discounts are available.
A variety of species are available, including beautiful flowering shrubs that will attract beneficial insects to your garden, fire and drought resistant species, large trees that provide shade year round to your home or creek, and hardwoods to bring vibrant colors for you to enjoy each fall.
Free of cost, UCD helps landowners design stewardship plans for their property with advice on planting and thinning methods, planning for water and soil protection, improving wildlife habitat, planning for wildfire (Firewise) and much more.
UCD can also help arrange for cost-share assistance in implementing projects for improving and protecting natural resources.
UCD is a not-for-profit, non-regulatory agency, available to assist landowners in natural resource conservation.
