The Wood County Land Conservation Department is offering a variety of wildlife trees and shrubs for its 2013 tree and shrub sale.

The species offered this year are: American hazelnut, American mountain ash, elderberry, black walnut, hybrid poplar, white cedar, white oak, white pine, white spruce, blueberries and a sequential flowering packet which includes forsythia, common lilac, sand cherry, ninebark and rose of Sharon.
Tree bundles contain 25 trees, blueberries are in bundles of five and the flowering packet is a bundle of 10. Sizes range from 7 to 24 inches; prices range from $11 to $22.50, depending on tree type.
We also are offering a variety of prairie wildflower seeds, generic gel, tree shelters, tree planters and tree spades. Generic gel is a starch absorbent that retains water and gives it back to the plant during dry periods. Tree shelters are 4-foot plastic, seamless, twin-walled tubes. They protect newly planted seedlings from wildlife damage.
