Dems: Fast-growing trees available through State Forest Nursery

November 6, 2015

Through November 25, the State Forest Nursery is offering a “Fast Forest” seedling packet. It includes a combination of the nursery’s five fastest growing species, which are also great for soaking up rainwater and tolerating wet conditions.

Orders for the Fast Forest Packet will include 250 bare-root seedlings for $110, plus tax, shipping and handling. Packets include Silver Maple, River Birch, American Sycamore, Cottonwood and Hybrid Poplar.

For more information or to order, call the State Forest Nursery at 1-800-865-2477 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Seedling choices, including photos and descriptions, can be seen in the seedling catalog at
