Hardwood Trees for Planting Spring 2019


December 27, 2018

It’s cold outside, so think warm thoughts like spring time. A nice warm spring activity is tree planting. The Green County Land & Water Conservation Department is offering 11 varieties of trees and three varieties of shrubs for landowners interested in planting trees next spring.

The tree varieties are: Bur Oak, Red Oak, White Oak, Swamp White Oak, Sugar Maple, Black Cherry, Shagbark Hickory, Wild Plum, Basswood, White Pine and Norway Spruce. Shrubs available are: Serviceberry, Ninebark, and Nannyberry. The trees and shrubs are bare root, and range in height between 1.5’-4’, depending on species. The cost is $2.00 a tree with a minimum order of 10 of one species, and must be ordered in increments of 10.

Most of the trees and shrubs are native to the area, except the Norway Spruce. The species offered cover a broad range of soil types and moistures, from dry to very wet.

Five foot tree tubes, root dip, including Mycorrhizal root dip and nutrient packs, are also available to order. Trees can be ordered by contacting the LWCD directly by phone and walk-in, or by ordering through the Green County website at If you are unsure about what trees will work in your particular soil, have any questions about the trees or how to order stop in or give the Green County Land & Water Conservation Department a call at (608) 325-4195. We will be taking orders until Friday, December 28th. Trees are scheduled for pick up April 18th and 19th. To stay warm, think spring!
