Texas A&M Agrilife Extension Office, 604 N. Main
Weatherford, TX 76086 United States

The Parker County Soil and Water Conservation District’s annual tree seedling and planting program is under way. Orders for evergreen and hardwood seedlings can be made until Feb. 8, with pickup being on or after Feb.16.
All trees and shrubs have a beneficial purpose in nature. After the drought of 2011, many homeowners and landowners did not replace dead or damaged trees because they worried what 2012 would bring. But, planted in the right place for a specific purpose, trees and shrubs will grow to save energy when installed as windbreaks, will assist crop or livestock production by protecting the area against the effects of wind, be a riparian buffer that improves water quality, all while providing shelter such as nesting sites, and possibly providing food for different types of wildlife. Many trees that catch the eye were planted 10 – 15 years ago and are still hale and hardy. Trees planted today will grace the future with there leafy boughs and bountiful beauty and shade.
Evergreen seedlings are sold in boxes of 25 for $75 or individually for $3, and have a root volume of 10 cubic inches. This year the available selection is Afghanistan Pine, Bald Cypress, Catalpa, Cedar Elm, Fourwing Saltbush, Green Ash, Italian Stone Pine, Lacebark Elm, and Oriental Arborvitae.
Hardwood seedlings are shipped bare rooted in gel packing, and are 18 to 24 inches tall and come in bundles of 25 for $38. This year the available selection is American Plum, Bur Oak, Chinkapin Oak, Shumard Oak, and Little Native Pecan.
The ever-popular “Range Plants of North Central Texas” can be yours for making a minimum donation of $25 to the District. Donations are important to the district as it is a political subdivision of the State of Texas without taxing authority. The district has been working for Parker County residents for the past 76 years.
For more information on purchasing seedlings, or to obtain an information packet, visit the office at 604 North Main, Suite 100 in Weatherford, call 817-594-4672, ext. 3, or email parkercounty@swcd.texas.gov. Information is also available at parkercountyswcd.org and on Facebook.
If you forget to order, a limited number of evergreen seedlings will be available Feb. 16 through Feb 21.
